- You cannot light a wood fire in parks during the Fire Danger Season. Some parks have year-round bans on wood fires.
- All open fires, liquid fuel and gas stoves are banned in all parks on Total Fire Ban days as declared by the Country Fire Service (CFS) and broadcast on the radio. Parks may be closed to visitors on Total Fire Ban days.
- Department for Environment and Water (DEW) imposes fire restrictions to ensure the safety of visitors using the reserves, and to protect the reserves and neighbouring properties.
- For information on fire restrictions in National Parks, Wildlife Reserves and Wilderness Protection Areas contact DEW.
DEW conducts prescribed burns as part of its fire management program. Prescribed burning is the controlled use of fire to a particular area of landscape. The aim is to strategically reduce fire fuel hazards in areas of South Australia's parks and reserves.
