Bushfire warning level: WATCH AND ACT

Queensland Fire and Emergency Services (QFES) advises there is a bushfire in Adelaide Park and conditions could get worse.

You need to be ready to follow your bushfire survival plan. If you do not have a plan, or intend to leave, you should be ready to leave the area because the situation could get worse quickly.

Currently as at 3.30am Tuesday 12 November, a slow-moving fire is travelling between Adelaide Park Road and Limestone Creek Road. Crews have constructed firebreaks between Vaughans Road and Limestone Creek Road. 

Fire crews are working to contain the fire but firefighters may not be able to protect every property. You should not expect a firefighter at your door.

An evacuation area is located at the basketball courts at Cordingley Street, Yeppoon. Residents self-evacuating should travel in an easterly direction along Adelaide Park Road towards Yeppoon. 

People in the area will be affected by smoke, which will reduce visibility and air quality.

Call Triple Zero (000) immediately if you believe your property is under threat.

WHAT YOU SHOULD DO:
Listen to your local radio station or visit the Rural Fire Service (RFS) website for regular updates.
If you have a bushfire survival plan, finalise it now so you are ready to follow it.
If you do not have a bushfire survival plan, or if your plan is to leave, identify where you will go if you leave the area.
Advise family and friends of your plan.
Close windows and doors to minimise smoke exposure.
If you suffer from a respiratory condition, keep your medication close by.
Drive with caution in low visibility conditions.
Contact your neighbours to see if they need help preparing for the bushfire.
Pack important documents and essential items (e.g., passports, birth certificates, prescription medication, food and water, and protective clothing) in case you need to leave the area.
Put on protective clothing (e.g., a long-sleeved cotton shirt, boots with thick soles).
Drink plenty of water to stay hydrated.
Bring pets inside; restrain them with a leash, a cage, or inside a secure room; and provide them with plenty of water.
Take action to protect your livestock.
Move flammable materials such as doormats, wheelie bins, and outdoor furniture away from your house.
Fill containers such as your bath, sinks, and buckets with water so you have access to drinking water and firefighting water.
Close windows and doors, sealing the gaps under doors and screens with wet towels to keep smoke out of the house.

SEEK SHELTER: Adelaide Park (part of the Cobraball/Bungundarra bushfire) bushfire as at 9.50am Sun 10 Nov

MEDIA OUTLETS PLEASE NOTE: 
QFES REQUESTS MEDIA BROADCASTING IN THE WARNING AREA TO USE THE STANDARD EMERGENCY WARNING SIGNAL (SEWS) WITH THIS MESSAGE.
 
SEEK SHELTER: Adelaide Park (part of the Cobraball/Bungundarra bushfire) bushfire as at 9.50am Sun 10 Nov
 
Bushfire warning level: EMERGENCY WARNING
 
Queensland Fire and Emergency Services (QFES) advises there is a bushfire approaching Adelaide Park. It is now too late to leave the area. Driving now would be extremely dangerous.
 
Follow your bushfire survival plan now. Your safest option is to identify where you will seek shelter from the bushfire. If you are not in the area, do not return, as conditions are too dangerous.
 
Currently as at 9.50am Sunday, 10 November a dangerous fire is burning towards Neils Road and Adelaide Park Road. It is expected to impact Neils Road and Adelaide Park Road imminently. The fire is expected to have a life-threatening impact on the community.
 
A separate warning is current for residents in the Druces Road and Mapes Road area. These residents should refer to the bushfire warning for Cobraball/Bungundarra.
 
Conditions are now very dangerous and firefighters are unable to prevent the fire advancing.

The fire poses a threat to all lives directly in its path. Fire crews may not be able to protect your property. You should not expect a firefighter at your door: act now. Power, water, and mobile phone service may be lost.

People in the area will be affected by thick smoke and embers, which will reduce visibility and air quality. As the fire approaches, it will become difficult for you to see, hear and breathe. You will experience intense heat, darkness, and loud noise.
 
An evacuation centre was opened earlier at the basketball courts on Cordingley Street, Yeppoon, but driving now would be extremely dangerous.
 
Call Triple Zero (000) immediately if you believe you are under threat.
 
WHAT YOU SHOULD DO:
Listen to your local radio station or visit the Rural Fire Service (RFS) website for regular updates.
Put on protective clothing (e.g., a long-sleeved cotton shirt, boots with thick soles).
Drink plenty of water to stay hydrated.
If you suffer from a respiratory condition, keep your medication close by.
 
If you are staying:
Bring pets inside; restrain them with a leash, a cage, or inside a secure room; and provide them with plenty of water.
Move flammable materials such as doormats, wheelie bins, and outdoor furniture away from your house.
Fill containers such as your bath, sinks, and buckets with water so you have access to drinking water and firefighting water.
Close windows and doors, sealing the gaps under doors and screens with wet towels to keep smoke out of the house.
Identify a safe spot to shelter in, which would be a place with more than one exit, preferably inside a brick building, away from windows and doors. The safest spot is the place that will keep you furthest away from the intense heat from the fire. As the fire approaches and passes, the safest spot will change, so be ready to move.
 
If you are not staying:
Leave now. Do not delay.
Be prepared to negotiate changing road conditions. Roads may become blocked or access may change.
If you become stuck in your car, park away from bush and get onto the floor as the windows may break from the intense heat.
