Risk of forest fires

The Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine has issued a nationwide Condition Red Forest Fire Danger Rating Notice.

While the notice is in place, you should avoid lighting fires around forests or open land. Be careful when disposing of smoking materials, such as cigarette butts. If you do come across a fire, do not attempt to fight it yourself. Try to move to a safe area upwind of the fire, and phone 112 to alert the emergency services.
