Are you fire ready?



With the summer upon us, residents of Benalla Rural City are being urged to ensure their homes and properties are fire safe.

Residents need to have a plan in place and prepare their properties in the event of a fire.

KEEP UP TO DATE
•Check the Total Fire Ban and Fire Danger Rating for Benalla Rural City, located in the North East fire district, every day over summer.

•Victoria is considered one of the most fire-prone regions in the world – the only way to stay safe is to leave the night before or the morning of a 'Code Red' day, or early in the morning of a 'Severe' or 'Extreme' day.

•Download the FireReady smart phone app to easily check Fire Danger Ratings, alerts and warnings.

•Visit the Country Fire Authority's (CFA) website at www.cfa.vic.gov.au or phone the VictorianushfireInformation Line on 1800 240 667 or 'Like' CFA Victoria's Facebook page to keep up-to-date with the latest information.

HAVE A PLAN
•Talk with all members of your household about your plan so everyone knows what to do in the event of a fire.

•Pack a relocation kit with important documents, photos, medications, money and clothes so you are ready to leave early. Practise packing and leaving, and prepare for every scenario.

•If you have pets, plan how you will care for them in the event of a fire. If you plan to take them with you, make sure you have pet food and something to secure them with.

•Do not rely on receiving a warning – it is your responsibility to know when to leave.
