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:
- When will you know to leave?
- Where will you go?
- 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.
