As part of your bushfire plan, put together an emergency kit that contains:
- Overnight bag with change of clothes and toiletries
- Medicines and first aid kit
- Important information, such as passport, will, photos, jewellery
- Mobile phone and charger
- Adequate amount of water
- Wool blankets
- Contact information for your doctor, council and power company
Store your kit in an easy-to-access location.
Before the fire season
Practise how to pack the car
Make sure it is quick and easy to pack and everything fits. Remember to leave space for your pets
Keep important items and information in a safe place
Consider moving your irreplaceable family keepsakes and valuables out of the area during summer. Scan important information and photos and store them on a USB flash drive or an external hard drive.
