Ninety Rural Fire Service personnel responded to 12 incidents over the course of Tuesday's Catastrophic fire danger period.
According to RFS district officer Ross Smith, crews responded to nine bush and grass incidents, one tree fall, one motor vehicle accident and one structure fire. Most of the grass and bush fire reports were false alarms, but crews did respond to a small grass fire and a bin fire.
While 90 RFS members were in the field, stations were open and on standby, able to draw on 200 personnel had the need arisen.
Much of the day was spent responding to reports of smoke, which turned out to be a thick pall of dust blown in by the strong winds.
"These were good intent calls," Mr Smith said.
He said it was difficult for people to tell the difference between dust and smoke and in Tuesday's Catastrophic conditions, it was understandable there were multiple reports.
"If people are concerned they should call triple-0, give all the information they can and provide a callback number so our crews can pinpoint the area and investigate."
Mr Smith said while conditions had eased, there was still danger ahead and next week would see a return to a very high fire danger.
This meant people should prepare a bushfire survival plan.
"You should work out of what you'll take and where you will go. And you should know your trigger points - the point at which you'll want to leave - and let your neighbours know."
