Your checklist
  • Get low

    Smoke is poisonous and more deadly than flames.

    If you breathe smoke for more than a few breaths it can kill you.

  • Be fast

    A house fire can kill you in less than three minutes.

    Don't spend time trying to save possessions.

  • Close doors

    A closed door buys you time.

    It slows down the spread of fire, giving you more time to get to safety.

  • Get out - stay out!

    People have died by going back into a fire.

    Don't leave the meeting place to go back inside for any reason.

Fire Plans

What are Fire Plans?

A Fire Plan provides transparency and predictability for how Fire and Emergency will use its fire control powers, outlining the particular fire risk conditions that exist or are likely to exist for the local area and sets out the policies and procedures at a local level for the management of risks relating to fire.

Each Fire Plan outlines, specific to each local area, things like: 

  • what prohibitions or restrictions on the use of fire might apply, including what triggers we will use for those restrictions
  • how firebreaks may reasonably be considered necessary for the purpose of fire control  
  • removal or destruction of vegetation or other things that could increase the fire risk.
