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.
