Fire danger season information for families
Families are encouraged to read the Bushfires and Your Child’s School or Preschool brochure which provides advice to families and caregivers on how to prepare for the fire danger season, and what to do if a bushfire is burning near their child's site.
The brochure also highlights the need for families to understand the site Emergency Management Plan for their child’s site. Ask your site for a copy of their plan.
It is important that each family has their own personal bushfire survival plan in place for days of catastrophic fire danger or in the event of a bushfire threat.
We ask that you familiarise yourself with the brochure and be prepared, before an emergency arises. By doing this it will help staff at your child’s site to keep them safe.
In any bushfire situation the Emergency Information Hotline can provide advice to parents and caregivers on up-to-date information as it relates to department sites and the welfare of children.
