Fire Restrictions begin

It’s been pretty dry so it’s no surprise that Fire and Emergency New Zealand has declared a restricted fire season for all of the Waikato District effective from Monday 13 January.

This means you will need a permit to light a fire in the open.

To check what’s classed as an open fire and to apply for a permit please go to and click on the Can I Light A Fire icon.
