Every summer bushfires start suddenly and without warning. As the former Fire & Emergency Services Adviser to the Premier, I’ve seen first hand the devastating impact a bushfire can have and I know we need to work together to protect our community from the threat of bushfires. 

If you live in or near scrub or bush - fire is a real risk to you and your family. Now is the time to prepare your property and put a bushfire survival plan in place.

Below is some further information on how you and your family can prepare for the upcoming bushfire season.

ALWAYS CALL TRIPLE ZERO '000' FOR FIRE OR LIFE THREATENING EMERGENCIES
