Grassfire safety information
Essential grassfire safety information for schools and early childhood services ahead of the summer fire season.
Grassfires can start and spread quickly, especially on days when the fire danger rating is High, Extreme or Catastrophic.
The fire danger rating will tell you how dangerous a fire would be if one started. As the ratings increase, so does the risk of fires being uncontrollable.
If your educational facility is near grassland, parks or paddocks, you can be at risk, even when your school or early childhood service is on the urban fringe.
