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

Is there a phone number for the Fire Control Centre?


Does this mean burning a bonfire needs notification or something larger like burning off land?

There was a drunk driver in a Ute, whom I reported. We were deeply concerned that he was heading along Mittagang Rd towards town. I sincerely hope it wasn’t him.
