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 form and email it to burnoffs [at] esta.vic.gov.au or by fax to: 1300 674 428.
Further information about burn-offs can be found at the CFA website.
