With the intense fires affecting almost every state of Australia, we get asked a lot is about the safety of using a fire pit or wood barbecue during this time.

With the catastrophic bushfires affecting almost every state of Australia since November, one question we get asked a lot is about the legality and safety of using a fire pit or barbecue during the fire ban.

When a total fire ban is in place, there are very specific rules that need to be followed to ensure that you don’t cause any risk for bushfires in an already dangerous environment. At MAX Custom Fire Pits, we support the local and national Rural Fire Authorities and recommend that you check out your state’s guidelines to make sure you are doing the right thing.
