END OF BUSH FIRE DANGER PERIOD - 30 APRIL 19

The Bush Fire Danger Period for the Snowy Monaro Regional Council area ends at 30 April at 2359 hours. From Wednesday 1 May you do not require a permit to burn.

You must still notify neighbours and the Fire Control Centre 24 hours before burning. Notifications are a requirement all year.

You can reach the Cooma FCC on 02 6455 0455 during business hours or leave a message after hours.

Keeping an accurate register of planned burns means when a person calls 000 for your planned event you don't have a number of fire trucks show up at your doorstep unnecessarily
