We know what fire can do. So we've used our knowledge to create a new, nationally consistent Fire Danger Rating System. It's now simpler, clearer, and it could save your life.
The new Fire Danger Rating System has four levels. Each level tells you how dangerous a bushfire could be if one starts and comes with clear actions to take. The higher the Fire Danger Rating, the more severe the bushfire could be.
Fire Danger Ratings are important when deciding on your trigger to leave in your bushfire plan.

Fire Danger Ratings are important because they provide people with information so they can take action to protect themselves and others from the potentially dangerous impacts of bushfires. Ratings are calculated using a combination of weather forecasting and information about vegetation that could fuel a fire. They do not indicate the chance of a fire occurring, although this is a common misconception.
