The Bush Fire Danger Period (BFDP) will commence in Shoalhaven Local Government Area (LGA) on Friday 1 September 2017. The Shoalhaven LGA is one of 19 LGAs in NSW that permanently commence the BFDP on 1 September.

Anyone wishing to light a fire during the BFDP must obtain a permit prior to burning. To apply for one, contact your local NSW RFS Fire Control Centre or Fire and Rescue NSW station.

Residents must provide a minimum of 24 hours notice to their local fire authority (RFS or Fire & Rescue NSW), and all adjoining neighbours - this is a year-round legislative requirement - even outside of the BFDP you must provide notification of your intention to burn.
