BLUE: Advice Message; YELLOW: Watch and Act Message; RED: Emergency Warning


Well prepared and actively defended homes can offer safety.

Check and follow your Bushfire Survival Plan. If you don't have a plan, take shelter before the fire arrives as heat from the fire can kill you well before the flames reach you.

If the building catches fire, you need to get out and go to an area that has already been burnt. After the fire has passed, check around you and put out anything burning.

Stay tuned to your local ABC on a battery-powered radio for updates.

For information about bushfires, check the CFS website or call the Bushfire Information Hotline on 1300 362 361.
