In order to keep safe, it is important to be aware of the potential weather risks when you are travelling through, or holidaying in, areas you are unfamiliar with.

If you have pre-booked and paid for accommodation in bushfire-prone areas, it would also pay to check the property’s policy in relation to cancellations on Extreme and Code Red fire danger days. The Victorian CFA advises to never travel into a bushfire-prone area if a Code Red has been declared.

And most of all, have a happy and safe family holiday.
