  • 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):
