THE fire danger period will officially finish at 1am on Wednesday 1 May for Frankston and the Mornington Peninsula.CFA Deputy Chief Officer South East Trevor Owen said all landowners could burn off without a CFA permit once the fire danger ended but needed to be mindful of applicable municipal regulations.“Registering your burn-off ensures that if smoke or fire is reported, the incident is cross-checked with our register, which prevents firefighters from unnecessarily responding and allows Triple Zero call takers to focus their efforts on emergency calls,” Owen said.
