Fire Safety

It is your responsibility to prepare yourself, your family and your home for the threat of bush fire. You need to make the decision to either leave early or stay and defend a well prepared property.

Regardless of your decision you must prepare your property to give yourself and your home the best chance of survival. By understanding your own level of risk you will be better able to make the right decision for you and your family.
