Stay aware of the Fire Danger Ratings and know what to do.
The Fire Danger Rating predicts how a fire would behave if one started, including how difficult it would be to put out.
The higher the rating, the more dangerous the conditions.
The rating is your trigger to act, so to stay safe you need to stay aware of the Fire Danger Rating in your district.
During the fire season, the Fire Danger Rating will feature in weather forecasts and be broadcast on radio and TV and appear in some newspapers.
It can also be found on the websites of the CFA, Department of Sustainability and Environment and Bureau of Meteorology or by calling the Victorian Bushfire Information Line on 1800 240 667.
