Protective kits available for people returning to properties

Protective kits are available for people returning to properties affected by fire. They are available from your local council or an emergency recovery centre, along with additional masks, disposable coveralls and sturdy gloves.

Kits should only be used for personal protection during property inspections. They are not for asbestos removal or cleanup.

The Department of Health and Human Services information sheet, After a fire: returning home safely, is included in the kit, which details the health and safety considerations that you should know before re-entering your property.
