Bushfire warnings levels
All Queenslanders should be familiar with the official Bushfire Warning levels. When there's a bushfire in your area, it's up to you to take notice, seek information, and follow the actions appropriate to the warning level listed on the Queensland Fire and Emergency Services (QFES) website.
Watch the video about Bushfire Warnings on the QFES website.
The 3 levels of Bushfire Warnings are:
- EMERGENCY WARNING (red): You’re in danger and need to take life-saving action immediately.
- WATCH & ACT (orange): There’s a heightened level of threat and conditions are changing. Act now to protect yourself and your family.
- ADVICE (yellow): There’s no immediate danger but you need to stay informed in case the situation changes.
The Bushfire Warning levels use the Australian Warning System nationally consistent set of icons:
