There’s no questioning the facts. During summer, you should check Fire Danger Ratings daily via the
VicEmergency website or app. The higher the rating, the more uncontrollable a fire would be if one started.
Ratings can be different across the state, so know your fire district. Decide what rating is your trigger to take action.

Lions were rocking. Beaton struck again with the score on
