Bush Fire Ready

ARE YOU BUSH FIRE READY?

Department of Fire & Emergency Services have updated their website to include new bushfire planning and preparation tools, consisting of 5 minute Fire Chat, and Your Bushfire Preparation Toolkit, which are two simple steps aimed at helping residents to be better prepared for bushfire.

The 5 minute Fire Chat asks people living in a high bushfire risk area to have a fire chat to discuss three key questions with family and friends or to discuss with their neighbours if they live alone:


• When will you know to leave?
• Where will you go?
• Which way will you go?


If this is all people do, they will be more prepared than doing nothing. This approach is easy for all people to achieve.

After the questions are answered above, the website will direct you to take the next step, which is to seek out their Bushfire Preparation Toolkit. The Toolkit can be downloaded at
www.dfes.wa.gov.au/firechat

For further information please contact communitypreparedness@dfes.wa.gov.au or 9395 9816.
