Bushfire website

About the bushfire website

The Queensland Government bushfire website at www.qld.gov.au/bushfire acts as a source of truth and gateway so that Queenslanders can easily find reliable information about bushfire. It has bushfire information suitable for the general public, and a dedicated section with information links for councils and disaster management practitioners.

The bushfire website is designed to present clear sections to assist users to:

  • be bushfire aware - know your bushfire risk, understand bushfire warnings and daily fire danger ratings, and find current bushfire warnings and incidents
  • prepare for bushfire – and make a Bushfire Survival Plan
  • find bushfire recovery and assistance information
  • understand bushfire health and safety
  • learn about bushfire resilient homes and rebuilding
  • check local disaster dashboards
  • access the Queensland Fire and Emergency Services (QFES) website.

The bushfire website is a whole-of-government initiative supported by a network of state agency web and communication teams and content partners to ensure Queensland's bushfire related content uses consistent messaging that is coordinated, current, and provides a consistent user experience with easy-to-find information.

We encourage links to www.qld.gov.au/bushfire from organisation web pages as appropriate.
