Fire in a bushland setting

Plan. Act. Survive

Do you know how far an ember can travel before starting a new fire? Or that the heat and ferocity of a bushfire could melt the trailer off a ute?

Victoria is one of the most fire prone areas in the world and bushfires and grassfires are a part of life.

Bushfires and grassfires start quickly, often without warning and they can threaten lives and properties within minutes.

All Victorians need to know how to plan for and respond to fire.

If you see behaviour that could lead to a bushfire, it’s up to you to report it and keep our community safe. Call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or go to Link

In an emergency, or if you see smoke or flames, call 000 immediately.

For fire safety information in a language other than English go to the translated information section and the Country Fire Authority websiteExternal Link .
