In a bushfire every five minutes counts, especially the next five minutes. DFES launched a new campaign this weekend, and together we’re asking everyone to take five and check… ‘Are you Bushfire Ready?’.

Bushfires are unpredictable and happen every year.  The single biggest killer is indecision. To survive a bushfire you must be prepared to make your own decisions. Having a five minute Fire Chat is a great first step to protect your family, as well as using the new Bushfire Preparation Toolkit to help you plan.

The SES provides support to career and volunteer firefighters during large scale bushfire incidents, so many of our volunteers have experienced the harrowing experience of bushfire. We encourage everyone to be prepared. For these tools and more information visit ‘Are you Bushfire Ready?’ today.
