Information Sheet - 'Can I Or Can't I? ', Country Fire Authority, Victoria, Aug 2006 Document Reg. No: HT 26463

CFA pamphlet published in 2006, it was still available after the February 2009 bushfires. It outlines conditions under which various farm or business or leisure activities can be undertaken during periods of high fire danger or a total fire ban.
A4 colour double sided paper
Statement Of Significance:
The bushfires of February 2009 have changed forever the way in which we think of fire risk. This collection of public education material still available after Black Saturday shows how difficult it is for authorities to keep pace with creating appropriate, current and relevant publications. The inclusion of both flood and fire information for the same region also illustrates the challenges faced by local government and other authorities when dealing with increasing extremes of climate.

References: updated version with the following banner heading - "Victoria is one of the most bushfire-prone regions in the world so we all need to be careful with fire, and things that can start fires, during the warmer months. This brochure details what you can and can't do during declared Fire Danger Periods and on days of Total Fire Ban. Fires in the open air are legally restricted when a Fire Danger Period is declared in a municipality by CFA. These restrictions are in place until 1 May unless revoked earlier. Department of Sustainability and Environment (DSE) fire restrictions are in force all year in State forests, National, State and Regional parks. Contact local DSE and Parks Victoria offices for advice on campfire restrictions. Total Fire Bans are declared by CFA on days when fires are likely to spread rapidly and be difficult to control."
