To stay or leave? Leaving early is your safest choice.
A well-prepared home has a better chance of withstanding a bushfire, even if you decide to leave early. Having your home threatened by a bush fire can be stressful. Your response time is critical.
During a bush fire threat, it is vital to monitor bush fire alerts and warnings from the NSW Rural Fire Service (RFS) and other emergency agencies , as it may affect where you live or how you leave your property.
