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.

ABC is the official emergency broadcaster in all Australian states. In an emergency, download the ABC Listen App below to listen to up to date information for your area.
