Fire Permits

If you are planning to light an “open air” fire within a rural fire district you need to apply for a Fire Permit.  Permits are issued by the Rural Fire Authorities.

The Fire Permit website also provides safety information to help you reduce risk while in the forest or as an owner of a small forest plantation. It is important that you have adequate insurance to protect you from personal and business risk in the event of a fire.

Apply for a Fire Permit online.

In case of fire in New Zealand call 111.

OneFortyOne acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of Country throughout Australia and their deep connections to land, water, and community. We pay our respect to Elders past and present and extend that respect to all First Nations people today.

In Aotearoa New Zealand, Māori communities have a strong spiritual connection between people and the land – the wellbeing of one sustains the wellbeing of the other. We strive to build meaningful relationships with iwi as tangata whenua (people of the land/region), to be responsible intergenerational kaitiaki (stewards/guardians) of the land where our forests grow.
