Be Prepared: Get Ready Weekend 2018
Over the weekend of 22-23 September 2018, NSW Rural Fire Brigades will host more than 600 events across the state featuring firefighting vehicle displays, information stands, kids activities and workshops.
This is a great opportunity for families to have fun, get to know their local firefighters, find out about the local fire risk and learn just how easy it is can be to prepare for the bush fire season.
IT’S A FACT! If you follow the five simple steps to getting ready and have a bush fire survival plan you will reduce the risk to you and your home.
Working together we can all help make our communities safer this bush fire season.
Top five actions
Don't know where to start? You can:
overhanging trees and shrubs.
your lawn and remove all the cut grass.
material that can burn around your home (e.g. door mats, wood piles, mulch, leaves, outdoor furniture).
and remove all the debris and leaves from the gutters surrounding your home.
a hose or hoses that can stretch all around the house.
Just a few small actions now could make all the difference if fire threatens your home.
Take a few moments out of your weekend to make a start towards preparing. It might be easier than you think!
