Health and Safety

In an emergency, dial 000 to reach an ambulance, the police, or the fire department. If you decide to hike off the beaten track in the Blue Mountains, tell someone where you're headed. There is an emergency rescue service, which can be reached at 13/2500.

In summer, bush fires are a perennial worry—always obey the no-fire zones and make sure you have enough water to avoid dehydration.
