We prefer the phrase "Triple Zero" over "Triple Oh" because of potential confusion when using alphanumeric keypads which could cause people to incorrectly dial "666" in an emergency, not Triple Zero (000).

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
