To view Fire Danger Ratings (FDR) and Total Fire Bans (TFB):
- From the home screen, select “Fire Bans / Ratings”
- Select “Fire Danger Ratings”

- To view the 4-day FDR forecast, select between the dates in the top-right-hand corner of the map
Fire Danger Ratings are forecast for four days and a Total Fire Ban is declared by CFA on days when fires are likely to spread rapidly and could be difficult to control. If a district has not been declared a Total Fire Ban, fire restrictions may still apply for each municipality.
Fire Danger Ratings information is also available on the CFA website:
Traditionally Fire Danger Periods are set between 1 November and 30 April each year Total Fire Bans can be declared on any day of the year.
