Find out if you are at risk


The CFS Bushfire Ready Assessment Tool is a practical online process that will help you recognise exactly what you need to do to prepare your property.

Through a "pick and drop" interactive online function you are able to place familiar combustible icons around a house to represent your property's scenario. Once complete hit enter and the interactive tool graphically demonstrates your level of preparedness. If you are not prepared to the recommended level the system will advise of those things necessary to improve your safety and become Bushfire Ready.
