Are You Bushfire Ready?

This bushfire season Fire Chat will be the new ‘branding umbrella’ for Department of Fire and Emergency Services (DFES) community engagement and communications around bushfire. A suite of new bushfire planning and preparation tools have been developed, consisting of 5 minute Fire Chat, and supported by Your Bushfire Preparation Toolkit, which are two simple steps aimed at helping residents to be better prepared for bushfire.
The 5 minute Fire Chat asks people living in a high bushfire risk area to have a fire chat to discuss three key questions with family and friends or to discuss with their neighbours if they live alone:
• When will you know to leave?
• Where will you go?
• Which way will you go?
The Toolkit is available in hard copy but can also be downloaded at www.dfes.wa.gov.au/firechat

Patient Assisted Travel Scheme (PATS)

The Patient Assisted Travel Scheme (PATS) provides permanent country residents in a WA Country Health Service region with financial assistance when travelling more than 100kms to access the nearest eligible medical specialist service (including Telehealth).
Country patients needing to travel more than 70kms to access specialist medical treatment for cancer or dialysis, where the health service is unable to provide a transport service, are also eligible for some assistance.
PATS provides a subsidy to eligible patients, however it does not cover all costs associated with travel and accommodation.
To access PATS a referral must be made by the patient’s medical practitioner. The application for PATS assistance needs to be lodged prior to travel via fax, mail, email or in person at the patient’s nearest health service.
