The following fact sheets on bushfires are available to help owners and carers of animals prepare for emergencies. They are available as both a single sided fact sheet or with the Plan for Animal Welfare in Emergencies (PAWE) on the reverse side for printing at home. 

By completing a PAWE and including it in your bushfire survival plan, you can help ensure you make the best possible decisions to protect the safety of your animals. Ensure all members of your household/workplace are familiar with your bushfire plan at the start of each bushfire season.
