ACT Emergency Services Agency Commissioner Georgeina Whelan has declared a Total Fire Ban for the whole of the ACT under Section 114 of the Emergencies Act 2004 from midnight Wednesday, 20 November 2019 to midnight Thursday, 21 November 2019.

The ESA advises you to make sure you know where you will get more information and monitor the situation for any changes. You can do this through, the ESA Twitter and Facebook accounts, local ACT media outlets or by calling Access Canberra on 13 22 81.

To find out more about Total Fire Bans, including any closures or restrictions visit or call Access Canberra on 13 22 81.
