'Get Ready' For Bush Fire Season
Stuart Ayres said it is particularly important for anyone who lives near bushland and areas prone to grass fires to start preparing now.
"After another dry winter, its important households and families have a Bushfire Survival Plan in place, it may save your lives," said Stuart Ayres
"We're fortunate to have some of the most skilled and experienced firefighters in the world right here in NSW; however, they're facing a potentially long bush fire season so we all need to do our part in the community to be as prepared as possible.
Stuart Ayres encouraged residents to visit a local event to pick up vital fire safety information and to take a moment to thank our outstanding local firefighters for the tremendous work they do to help keep our communities safe.
