Be ready for fires

QUEENSLAND Fire and Rescue Service (QFRS) Commissioner Lee Johnson encouraged residents to discuss bushfire plans with their families in case they are faced with a fire emergency.

“Residents who plan to stay and defend their property should finalise their preparations around the home,” he said.

Preparations include:

  • Ensuring the yard is clear of long dry grass, fallen leaves and twigs;
  • wood piles are moved away from the home;
  • gutters are cleaned of leaves; and
  • gathering appropriate fire-fighting equipment ;
  • make sure you have protective clothing available.

If a serious fire occurs, regular updated information will be provided on the QFRS Rural Operations website at www.ruralfire.qld.gov.au or at www.fire.qld.gov.au and residents are advised to listen to their radio.
