The 5 minute Fire Chat asks people living in a high bushfire risk area to have a fire chat to discuss three key questions with family and friends or to discuss with their neighbours if they live alone:
When will you know to leave?
Where will you go?
Which way will you go?
If this is all people do, they will be more prepared than doing nothing. This approach is easy for all people to achieve.
After people have answered the three questions above, they are then directed to take the next step, which is to seek out their Bushfire Preparation Toolkit. The Toolkit is available in hard copy but can also be downloaded at www.dfes.wa.gov.au/firechat.Fact Sheets with further bushfire preparedness information can also be found on the website.
