Are you prepared? According to our fire authorities, a well-prepared home is more likely to survive a bushfire. A well prepared home can also be easier for you or firefighters to defend, and is less likely to put your neighbours' homes at risk.
In the mammoth 2019 / 2020 bushfire season, we saw many tourists stranded in bushfire affected areas. The NSW Rural Fire Service (RFS) warns "If you're travelling during the bush fire season, you could be affected by a fire. Bush and grass fires often cross roads and highways. Smoke can reduce visibility and roads may also be closed without warning."
