Burn-off and Water-off Notifications

Notifying ESTA about planned burns prevents unnecessary fire brigade response.  Callers reporting an actual fire can then be advised that the fire is a planned burn.  If this can't be verified, a fire brigade will be notified.  It is also good to inform your neighbours.

To notify us of your planned burn, please ring 1800 668 511

OR complete the Burn-off Notification Form and email it to or by fax to: 1300 674 428.

Further information about burn-offs can be found at the CFA website
