Fire Danger Rating

The fire danger rating is updated daily and can be viewed on the Bureau of Meteorology's website.

The City also posts the fire danger rating on its home page from 1 December through to 31 May each year.

The fire danger rating is based on the forecast weather conditions and provides advice about the level of bushfire threat on a particular day.  If you are in a bushfire risk area you need to know the fire danger rating (FDR) for your area to monitor local conditions and keep informed.
