New Fire Danger Ratings | From 1 September, Fire Danger Ratings will become much simpler as NSW adopts the new Australian Fire Danger Rating System.

From 1 September, Fire Danger Ratings will become much simpler as NSW adopts the new Australian Fire Danger Rating System.

The RFS has used the latest science as well as extensive community research to make fire danger ratings more simple, accurate and relevant to where you live.

The new fire danger rating system will be used consistently across all states and territories, so whether you're at home here in Port Macquarie or travelling in other parts of Australia, you will see the same system being used.

The new Fire Danger Rating System has four levels, instead of the previous six:

* Moderate

* High


* Catastrophic

On days when there is minimal risk, such as when it is raining, Fire Danger Rating signs will be set to No Rating.

There will also be clear actions to take at each level:

* At Moderate : Plan and prepare;

* At High : Be ready to act;

* At Extreme : Take action now to protect your life and property; and

* At Catastrophic : For your survival leave bush fire risk areas.
