With summer here, the City is encouraging everyone to discuss their plan in case of a bushfire threat. Department of Fire and Emergency Services has produced a Five Minute Fire Chat questionnaire so people can decide whether to leave early or stay and defend in case of fire. 

You can't outrun it, or outlast it, so take five minutes to outsmart it. In a bushfire every five minutes counts, especially your next five minutes.

Take the five Minute Fire Chat questionnaire online at to prepare.

Find information about local fire safety bans, burning restrictions, hazard reduction and more on the City's fire information pages.
