What is a total fire ban?
A total fire ban is a ban on any fire in the open air, other than a built-in gas barbeque, as well as a ban on using any equipment in the open air that emits naked flames or sparks. A total fire ban is declared when bushfires are likely to be difficult or impossible to control, usually in summer between the months of November and March.
