In rural Queensland the use of fire is controlled through the volunteer Fire Warden network. However if you live in an urban or rural fringe community the Fire Warden could be your local fire station.
The Fire Warden’s role includes:
- granting or rejecting applications for permit to light fire
- determining the conditions under which permitted fires can be lit
- advising owners and occupiers of the need for fuel and hazard reduction
- recommending safety precautions for the protection of homes and assets.
