Bush fire survival plan

A bush fire survival plan can help you make important decisions about what to do during a fire - like when to leave, what to take and what to do with animals. Being prepared for a bushfire can help save you and your family’s lives, your property and your livelihood.

If you live in or near bushland, you are at risk from a bush fire and developing a bush fire survival plan is critical.
