Park Street Orienteering Extreme Weather Policy

Here’s a reminder of the Park Street Orienteering policy for extreme weather conditions, and the precautions being taken this week:

  • Code Red/Catastrophic Fire Rating – event automatically cancelled
  • Extreme Fire Rating/Total Fire Ban – organisers will closely monitor conditions, and cancel the event if there is a fire risk, or on advice of landowners or emergency authorities

Visit the CFA website for current fire ratings (look for Central District):

Other extreme conditions include very high temperatures, strong winds, poor quality air due to smoke, and flooding. Organisers will closely monitor conditions, and may cancel or otherwise alter any events subject to extreme conditions.  Event cancellations will be posted on this website when practical.
