Prepare an Emergency Survival Kit

Having an emergency kit is an important step to prepare and protect your household for an emergency such as a Bushfire.

Keep your Emergency Survival Kit in a storage container in a location that is easy to get to and the whole family knows about.

Things to include in your kit are:

  • Portable battery-operated AM/FM radio
  • Waterproof torch
  • Spare batteries
  • First aid kit with manual
  • Candles with waterproof matches
  • Woollen blankets
  • Emergency contact numbers
And don’t forget to prepare for your pets as well. Make sure your pet is wearing an identification tag.
If you’re leaving, take a leash, basket, medication, food and a familiar toy for your animal. It will help reduce stress.
