How to report bushfires and bushfire hazards.

The RFS can issue a Bushfire Hazard Reduction Notice to a property owner or manager.
If you're a private landowner, you can also report a bushfire hazard online.
Report bushfire arson
Bushfire arson impacts people, property and the environment.
If possible, record the details and appearance of any people or vehicles that might be involved.
