BUSHFIRE UPDATES: Refer to the QFES Facebook or Twitter for up to date alerts and information. Outages and other emergency information (such as evacuation centres) will also be published on our disaster dashboard when required.

WATER CONSERVATION: Water operations at Cressbrook Dam are back online following days of emergency works from Ergon Energy and our staff.

DONATIONS: Donations towards townships affected by the fires can be made via Givit.
