What you need to know about...
The Bushfire Danger Ratings give you an indication of the consequences of a fire, if one was to start. On days of increased fire danger, there may be a Total Fire Ban. Visit Fire Danger Ratings and Total Fire Bans on the NSW Rural Fire Service Website here. [external link]
Most people have a plan for what they will do during a bushfire. Unfortunately, not every plan will withstand the test of a bushfire. Take 5 minutes to improve or make a plan at www.myfireplan.com.au [external link]
Safety Visits assist people to help reduce their risk of an accidental fire in their home and educates them how to safely escape in the event of a fire occurring. If you or someone you know would benefit from a Safety Visit click here to learn more.
