South Australia is divided into 15 fire ban districts. Each district has its own fire danger season dates, so it is
important to be aware of which district you live, work or travel in.
Your activities may span more than one Fire Ban District and you need to identify and record these Districts,
so that you can accurately monitor, Fire Danger Seasons, Fire Danger Ratings and Total Fire Bans.

Know your Fire Danger Season
The Fire Danger Season (FDS) generally runs from November to April. During the season, restrictions are placed on lighting fires to reduce the chance of bushfires starting. You must apply for a permit to light fires outdoors at this time, unless it is of a type prescribed in the Fire and Emergency Services Act 2005 and Regulations.
