Your Bushfire Preparation Toolkit

Posted on: Thursday, 12 October 2017 at 3:53:22 PM

This bushfire season Fire Chat will be the new ‘branding umbrella’ for Department of Fire and Emergency Services (DFES) community engagement and communications around bushfire. A suite of new bushfire planning and preparation tools have been developed, consisting of 5 minute Fire Chat, and supported by 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?

The Toolkit is available in hard copy but can also be downloaded at www.dfes.wa.gov.au/firechat.

Fact Sheets with further bushfire preparedness information can also be found on the website.
