RFS advice: Leave Eurobodalla now if leaving

Monday 30 December 2019

NSW Rural Fire Service warn there is significant potential for fires on the far south coast to impact people’s travel plans tomorrow and over coming days.

Visitors who choose to remain may not be able to leave until any fire-impacted areas can be made safe. If you need to leave, leaving now is the safest option.

Please check Live Traffic and Fires Near Me prior to departure, and regularly during your journey. Drive with your car headlights on at all times so you can be seen, and please travel with extra food and water.

People planning to visit the south coast of New South Wales are asked to delay their plans until the current fire activity has passed. This includes Eurobodalla’s popular tourist towns of South Durras, Batemans Bay, Broulee, Moruya, Tuross Head, Narooma and Tilba.

If you intend to stay on the south coast, please have a bushfire survival plan ready to activate. Do not enter bushland areas.

Stay up to date with the latest RFS information via Fires Near Me, call 1800 679 737 or listen to ABC Southeast radio or 2EC/PowerFM.
