What you need to do

Check and follow your Bushfire Survival Plan. Take shelter before the fire arrives as radiant heat can kill you well before the flames reach you.

Only leave if the path is clear to a safe place.

You should not enter this area as the roads may not be safe.

Homes that are situated and constructed or modified to withstand a bushfire, and that are prepared to the highest level and actively defended, may provide safety.

Stay tuned to this radio station on a battery-powered radio for updates.

For information about bushfires, check the CFS website www.cfs.sa.gov.au or call the Bushfire Information Hotline on 1300 362 361.

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.
