Bushfires are extremely common across the NT. It is important to prepare in advance for your own safety and for the safety of your property.
Territorians should all learn the different fire warnings that have been established as part of the Australian Warning System.

Alerts and warnings
There are three types of bushfire alerts:
- Advice alert
This means an incident has started. There is no immediate danger. Stay up to date in case the situation changes.
- Watch and act alert
This means there is a heightened level of threat. Conditions are changing and you need to start taking action now to protect you and your family.
- Emergency warning alert
An Emergency Warning is the highest level of warning. You may be in danger and need to take action immediately. Any delay now puts your life at risk.
