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

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