Where there is a risk from bush fire, the NSW Rural Fire Service uses Bush Fire Alerts to provide information to affected communities using radio, television, and the internet. There are three Bush Fire Alert levels to help you make the right choices for your safety

Advice
A fire has started. There is no immediate danger. Stay up to date in case the situation changes.

Watch and Act
There is a heightened level of threat. Conditions are changing and you need to start taking action now to protect you and your family.

Emergency Warning
An Emergency Warning is the highest level of Bush Fire Alert. You may be in danger and need to take action immediately. Any delay now puts your life at risk.

Remember, a fire can threaten suddenly. Don’t rely on a single source for emergency information and be ready to act.
