It’s Bushfire Action Week

bushfire_survival_plan

Welcome to Bushfire Action Week, a week to get prepared for the coming fire season ahead. The following link is full of absolutely fantastic tools to help your family get prepared. It’s also useful for people in the city! We can prepare for fire too as they can happen at any time and many of us also┬álive in the urban rural interface.

Other than preparing your garden and your home, each home is also recommmended to have a written and practiced emergency plan and kits (emergency and evacuation) for people and pets. It’s also important to understand the alerts and warnings and what they mean. For more information on these head to the ‘community’ section of our website.

Being prepared also involves a community approach, have a chat with your neighbours, see what they have in place and how you can help each other in the event of an emergency.
