Be prepared for bushfires

Plan ahead to protect yourself, family, animals and property.

Parkes Shire Council recognises that bush fires are a major challenge for the community. It has been a natural part of our landscape for thousands of years and remains an ever-present threat.

Council encourages residents to take steps to prepare themselves and their homes prior to the bush fire season.

Residents can keep track of the alert level of a bush fire in the area on the radio and the NSW RFS website.

Bush fire warnings and information are available through the NSW RFS website and the bush fire information line on 1800 679 737.
