The Fire Services Commissioner Craig Lapsley has given a clear explanation of the emergency warnings systems used for bushfires during an interview on ABC radio

Speaking on ABC 774 radio this morning Craig also advised residents on the best ways of keeping informed about what's happening on high fire danger days.

Mr Lapsley warned residents that they could be impacted by fires before emergency services have even been able to get on scene so they should never rely on receiving a warning.

He also advised people never to rely on one source for emergency information.
