Prepare your home and property for the bushfire season. Make sure you have a plan of action in place before there are fires in your area.

You also need to be aware of what to do if you are on holidays in a bushfire region. If you live in or are visiting a bushfire prone area, contact the CFA for specific information on how to prepare for and survive a bushfire.
