Prepare for a Bushfire

My Bushfire Plan

Do you and your family know what to do in the event of a bush fire? Do you have a bushfire safety plan prepared and an emergency kit packed?

The My Bushfire Plan app is a bushfire preparedness tool, providing you with one place to prepare, store, share and update your bushfire plan anytime, from any device.

Features included:

  • Helps you determine the safest plan for you.
  • Complete a step-by-step plan in your own time tailored to you, and save it for the future.
  • Create an account so you can access the plan on the web or on other phones.
  • Ability to share your plan with your family.
  • Check seasonal reminders to help you and your family prepare for bushfire season.
  • Receive notifications for important seasonal reminders to help you prepare.
  • When your plan is ready you can access it offline, whenever you need it.

Developed by the DFES, you can download the app to your phone (through Google Play or App Store), or complete the plan via the My Bushfire Plan website.
