Danger Season & Fire Bans
The entirety of the Port Pirie Regional Council area falls into the Mid North Fire Ban District.
The Fire Danger Season in the Mid North Region commences on 1st November and concludes on 30th April (inclusive). These dates are declared after consideration of recommendations from the Regional Bushfire Management Committee and are subject to change.
Fire restrictions under the Fire and Emergency Services Act 2005 apply during the dates of the Fire Danger Season.
These restrictions apply to everyone, not just those living in high bushfire risk areas.

Fire Restrictions: What can I do?
Once the Fire Danger Season has begun there are strict controls on the lighting of fires and the use of certain tools in the open. The restrictions remain in place until the end of the Fire Danger Season.
