Homes that have been built to withstand a bushfire, and are prepared to the highest level, may provide safety.

You may lose power, water, phone and data connections.

Fire crews are responding but you should not expect a firefighter at your door.

WHAT TO DO:
Check and follow your Bushfire Survival Plan.
Protect yourself from the fire's heat, put on protective clothing.
Tell family and friends of your plans.

IF YOU ARE LEAVING:
Leave now, don't delay.
Roads may become blocked or access may change. Smoke will reduce visibility.
Secure your pets for travel.
If you become stuck in your car, park away from bushes, cover yourself, get onto the floor as the windows may break from the intense heat.

PREPARE TO DEFEND:
Identify a spot to shelter in, with more than one exit, keep moving away from the heat of the fire.
Bring pets inside and restrain them.
Move flammable materials such as doormats, wheelie bins and outdoor furniture away from your house.
Close doors and windows to keep smoke out.
If you have sprinklers, turn them on to wet the areas.
If your building catches fire go to an area already burnt. Check around you for anything burning.
