Stay informed

Fires can threaten suddenly and without warning. Be prepared to enact your Bushfire Survival Plan without receiving an emergency warning.

The CFS cannot guarantee a fire truck will be there to protect your property so you need to:

  • Know what the bushfire dangers are for your area - visit www.cfs.sa.gov.au/incidents
  • On a daily basis, know the Fire Danger Rating for your area and what you need to do - visit www.cfs.sa.gov.au/firebans
  • Act decisively the moment you know there is danger
  • Watch for signs of fire, especially smoke and flames
  • Put your Bushfire Survival Plan into action (avoid a 'wait and see' response)

Look and listen for information on television, radio, internet, mobile phones and by speaking with neighbours.

Do not rely on a single source for emergency warning information.
