A very high danger rating has been issued for the Mid Coast region for today inline with the Bureau of Meteorology’s heatwave warned issued on October 31 covering the majority of the weekend for the Hunter District.
“The NSW Rural Fire Service has issued a very high fire danger rating for the region and other parts of the state today as well as a Total Fire Ban in some places,” NSW Rural Fire Service Mid North Coast District manager superintendent Kam Baker said.
“In some places they have also suspended fire permits which will last until the initial danger is over.”
In a Total Fire Ban no fire may be lit in the open and all fire permits are suspended.
This includes incinerators and barbecues which burn solid fuel and no general purpose welding, grinding, soldering or gas cutting can be done in the open.
