Be prepared for bushfire risk

IPSWICH people living in residential areas near bushland are being advised to have a bushfire survival plan ready to go.

Rural Fire Service Queensland South Western Regional Manager Lawrence Laing said current and forecast conditions could create fast moving, unpredictable blazes.

"Many Queenslanders believe they will not be affected by a bushfire, but living near a bushland area could mean you are in an area of risk and need to be properly prepared and consider their actions," Mr Laing said.

"On a severe, extreme or catastrophic fire weather day, the safest option for survival is leave well in advance of any fire."
