SEEK SHELTER: Tinnanbar bushfire as at 3.10pm Thurs 29 Nov 

MEDIA OUTLETS PLEASE NOTE: 

QFES REQUESTS MEDIA BROADCASTING IN THE WARNING AREA TO USE THE STANDARD EMERGENCY WARNING SIGNAL (SEWS) WITH THIS MESSAGE.

Bushfire warning level: EMERGENCY WARNING

Queensland Fire and Emergency Services (QFES) advises there is a bushfire approaching Tinnanbar. 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 3.10pm Thursday 29 November, a large fire is travelling in a north-easterly direction near Tinnanbar. Tinnanbar Road is being impacted by fire and is unsafe. The safest option is to shelter in place. QFES has crews on the ground and aerial support in place to protect life and property.

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.

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.
