Some days are much more dangerous than others.

Fire Danger Ratings help you understand the risk of a bush fire starting in your area.



Imagine the fire danger rating for tomorrow is ‘Extreme’. Would it be a good idea to go on a long bush walk in a national park?

Hey Firestormers!

Think carefully before going for a bush walk when the fire danger rating is ‘Catastrophic’.

One year on from the 2019/2020 summer catastrophic bushfires, the Central Coast Council took time to say ‘thank you’ to the volunteers, frontline workers and residents who helped to protect the community and give back during one of the most devastating natural disasters the Coast has ever seen. The bush fires of summer 2019/20 will leave a lasting impact on us all. As we hear the unique stories of 15 courageous locals who gave so much during this time, one common theme shines through: the strength, resilience and spirit of the Central Coast community.

The higher the fire danger rating, the more dangerous the conditions.

It's good to have you back
