Bush Fire Season is here – Fire Restrictions are in place.
During the bushfire season check the fire danger rating on a regular basis.
The bushfire rating for North East Fire District is indicated on a daily basis on the Fire Danger Rating Indicator located at the school on the Beechworth- Stanley Road opposite Rosengren Lane.
You can also check the rating online by visiting www.cfa.vic.gov.au and search North East Fire District.
