- You do not need to check in at an Emergency Support Services Reception Centre.
- Fill the gas tank of personal vehicles.
- Bring at least three days of food and essential supplies (e.g. medications, pet supplies) with you, as local grocery stores may not yet have adequate stock.
- Please use extra caution when driving – there may be hazards on the roads throughout the area, including downed trees. It’s a good idea to avoid driving at night or if there is poor visibility due to rain or smoke.
- Please refer to our Heading Back Home Guide for tips on returning safely to your home after an evacuation, including:
- how to assess and avoid potential hazards on your property, and
- how to deal with health and safety risks in your home, including rotting food and other garbage.
