After a disaster


What should you do after a fire passes?

  • Once it is safe to go outside, check for spot fires or embers:
    • Inside the roof space
    • Under the floorboards
    • Under the house
    • On verandas and decks
    • On window ledges and door sills
    • In roof lines and gutters
    • In garden beds or mulch
    • In sheds or carports
    • In woodpiles
    • On outdoor furniture
  • Stay at home until the surrounding area is clear of fire.
  • Continue to drink lots of water and listen to your local radio station for updates.
  • Monitor media outlets for updates.
