When holidaying, always check with the local council, Police, CFS or the media to help you decide if you will travel through or to a high risk area on a Total Fire Ban day. If you do decide to travel, ensure that you and your vehicle are prepared in the event of a fire. 1. HAVE A PLAN The decision of whether to stay or to leave during high fire risk days is critical. If you decide to leave you should do so early. Have alternative routes worked out that lead away from bushfire risk areas. 2. RESPONSIBILITIES Be aware of restrictions on the use of gas BBQs and campfires during the fire danger season and on total fire ban days, for further information contact the CFS. 3. PLAN AHEAD On days of Total Fire Bans, it is best to postpone a trip into the bush since the risk of a fire starting and growing rapidly is extremely high.
