Prepare for a bushfire

The Department of Fire and Emergency Services has information and resources that can help you prepare your property in the instance of a bushfire, including:

Prepare a survival kit

The Department of Fire and Emergency Services (DFES) has a Prepare A Survival Kit Checklist and Toolkit, which will help you to act quickly in an emergency.

Protect livestock

Your plan should include any pets and livestock.

Please watch the YouTube video Bushfire Preparedness for Small Landholders, about the Black Saturday experiences of a farmer and horse owner in the Yarra Ranges, Victoria.

Report suspicious behaviour

If you have information about a fire or suspect somebody of deliberately lighting fires, please call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000. Ongoing vigilance by the community in reporting suspicious behaviour and arson will help minimise the likelihood of bushfire.
