Getting fire ready

Take five and have a fire chat

In a bushfire every five minutes counts, especially your next five minutes.

DFES has launched a new tool called Fire Chat. Its concept is simple, just by talking with your family or loved ones about what you will do if a fire threatens your home and property could save your life.

The five minute Fire Chat asks you to discuss three key questions:

  1. When will you know to leave?
  2. Where will you go?
  3. Which way will you go?

Bushfires are unpredictable and happen every year. Even if you do not live within a bushfire prone region it's import to be fire aware, and having a Fire Chat is a great first step to protecting your family.
