There are four levels of community fire warnings:
Advisory: currently no threat to property, there is no action required.
Advice: currently no threat to property, but stay informed and consider taking a series of preparatory actions.
Watch and Act: you could be impacted and should prepare to enact your Bushfire Survival Plan.
Emergency Warning: you need to enact your Bushfire Survival Plan immediately and prepare for impact.
Warnings are issued by the media or on social media platforms. Firefighters, State Emergency Service (SES) volunteers or police may doorknock in the area or you could receive an Emergency Alert message on your mobile or home phone with advice on the situation and where to go for further information.
To minimise risk, identify and reduce the fire risks on your property, and prepare a Bushfire Survival Plan, published at www.ruralfire.qld.gov.au
