National Fire Danger Ratings

There are minor differences in the fire danger ratings between a few of the states (i.e. Victoria’s Code Red and Tasmania’s black for Catastrophic), however it is essential to be aware of the variation to your specific geographic region.

Classroom Activity:

  • The fire danger ratings system may be a excellent way to initiate class discussion about what each of the words in each category means.
  • Students could be encouraged to colour in each of the sections in the appropriate colour and write each word in the section.
