For everyone living anywhere in the state of NSW please read this!
For everyone currently in NSW a very large portion of NSW (Mainly Sydney and surrounding areas) as of 12th of November will be ranked as "Catastrophic" fire danger (That is as bad it gets). A very large amount of schools , tafes and universities are going to be closed today (Tuesday November 12th). A state wide state of emergency has been declared by the Premier of NSW.

Here is some general advice - http://www.rfs.nsw.gov.au/fire-information/emergency-information
I urge that you do your own research as the situation may vary from area to area. Please check the other parts of the RFS website and make a fire safety plan. I personally recommend that you constantly check your local news.
Please download the fires near me app and set up a watch zone so you can get an alert if a fire is burning near you! (Only works for NSW)
Stay safe everyone!
