THREE IMPORTANT THINGS TO KNOW

1. ANPC NOTIFICATION
When the weather conditions are forecast to be extreme with an exceptionally high risk of fires, the ANPC will issue a notification stating the forecast, expected effects and preventive steps.

2. SMS TEXT
In the Districts where a Red alert has been issued a Government SMS message is sent to mobile phone subscribers. It contains a telephone number for more information, usually 800 246 246 for local subscribers and 217 247 247 for overseas subscribers – PLEASE USE IT.

3. SELF PROTECTION MEASURES
In the event of a fire breaking out near you or it is approaching your house this leaflet in English gives a basic guide what to do. For those living in, or visiting rural areas, please download, print and keep it handy. Have an evacuation kit ready. If you rent your property ensure clients are aware.
