Code Red and extreme fire danger days


Fire Danger ratings

The CFA issues fire danger ratings based on weather and environmental conditions. A Code Red Day is the highest fire danger rating. On a Code Red Day you should refer to your Bushfire Survival Plan.

Visit Vic Emergency for up-to-date information on fire danger ratings, warnings and emergencies in your area.
