PREPARE FOR YOUR OWN SAFETY IN A TOUGH BUSHFIRE SEASON
We are already seeing glimpses of the fire season ahead. It looks like being a hot dry summer and it seems there is plenty of fire fuel laying around in our bushland.
I urge people to check around their own home to make sure that potential fire fuel is not going to put your home at risk. Clear your roof gutters of leaves, tidy up those piles of branches that might be sitting in garden beds, cut back branches that might be hanging over your buildings and if possible try to make sure that you have a hose long enough, and taps, to get around your whole yard.
And finally, download the new and upgraded App for your smart device – HazardsNearMe – which replaces the old FiresNearMe app.
