New Fire Danger Rating System in WA

Published on Tuesday, 6 September 2022 at 11:52:55 AM

🔥 As at 1st September 2022, the new Fire Danger Rating system has been launched by DFES.
🔥 What does this mean to us?
🔥 Using the latest science and community input, the new system aims to provide more accurate and timely information about fire danger.
🔥 Fire Danger Ratings will be issued on days when there is a fire risk. Each rating will have a clear set of messages, including the actions the community can take to reduce their risk.
🔥 Improving the science means we can also switch off the new system on days where no proactive action is required by the community. This is represented by the white bar under ‘Moderate’ in the new Fire Danger Rating design (pictured below).
If you have any questions about the new system... please contact the Shire office on 9671 2500 or
