The NSW Rural Fire Service has declared an end to the Bush Fire Danger Period in the Monaro Team area effective from the 31st of March.

From Saturday 1st April, fire permits will no longer be required for the Area.

Residents must still notify their neighbours and the local fire control center a minimum 24 hours before burning.

Residents should also check whether they need a Bush Fire Hazard Reduction Certificate, and have sufficient equipment to control and contain the fire to their property.

The Rural Fire Service says the local community should not become complacent to the danger of bush fire once the danger period is officially over.
