Neighbourhood Safer Places

Neighbourhood Safer Places are a place of last resort during a bush fire emergency.

They are to be used when all other options in your Bush Fire Survival Plan can't be put into action safely.

You should be aware of any Neighbourhood Safer Places in your area, and note them in your Bush Fire Survival Plan before a bush fire occurs. You should also know how to get there, as well as alternate routes in case the road is blocked or too dangerous to drive on.

How to call Triple Zero (000)

Stay focused, stay relevant, stay on the line

The Triple Zero (000) service is the quickest way to get the right emergency service to help you. You can contact Police, Fire or Ambulance in life threatening or emergency situations.

Assess the situation

  • Is someone seriously injured or in need of urgent medical help?
  • Is your life or property being threatened?
  • Have you just witnessed a serious accident or crime?

If you answered YES call Triple Zero (000).

Make your call

  • Stay calm and call Triple Zero from a safe place
  • When your call is answered you will be asked if you need Police, Fire or Ambulance
  • If requested by the operator, state your town and location
  • Your call will be directed to the service you asked for
  • When connected to the emergency service, stay on the line, speak clearly and answer the questions
  • Don't hang up until the operator tells you to do so.

Providing location information

  • You will be asked where you are
  • Try to provide street number, street name, nearest cross street and the area
  • In rural areas give the full address and distances from landmarks and roads as well as the property name
  • If calling from a mobile or satellite phone, the operator may ask you for other location information
  • If you make a call while travelling, state the direction you are travelling and the last motorway exit or town you passed.

Instructions from the operator

  • The operator may ask you to wait at a pre-arranged meeting point to assist emergency services to locate the incident

Other languages and text based services

  • People with a speech or hearing impairment can use the One Zero Six (106) text based service
  • If you can't speak English you can call Triple Zero (000) from a fixed line and ask for 'Police', 'Fire', or 'Ambulance'. Once connected you need to stay on the line and a translator will be organised
  • Further information in several community languages can be found on the Emergency information in other languages page.

Other things you can do

  • Keep the Triple Zero (000) number beside telephones at home and work
  • Teach children and overseas visitors that the emergency number to call in Australia is Triple Zero (000)
  • Teach children when and how to use Triple Zero by playing the Kids' Challenge.
