Fire Bans

Harvest & Vehicle Movement Ban (HVMB)

The Shire of Nungarin issues HVMB's in accordance with the Bush Fires Regulations 1954. The ban will be imposed when the Chief Bushfire Control Officer believes that the use of engines, vehicles, plant or machinery during the prohibited burning times is likely to cause a fire or contribute to the spread of a bushfire.

To find out if there has been a HVMB imposed please call the Shire office 9046 5006 . You can also be added to the HVMB SMS notification list by contacting the Shire office 9046 5006

Total Fire Ban (TFB)

A TFB will be declared by Department of Fire and Emergency Services (DFES) when extreme weather conditions are likely to result in a high risk of bushfire or if existing bushfires are stretching fire-fighting resources. A TFB prohibits the lighting of any fires in the open air as well as any other activities that may start a fire. This includes open air fires for the purpose of cooking or camping, incinerators, welding, grinding, soldering or gas cutting.

To find out if DFES has imposed a TFB you can visit the DFES website.
