Make your home bushfire safe - FREE Workshop at Eskbank House Museum

By Lithgow City Council
Posted: 12 Apr 2022
Preparing for a bush fire is easier than you think. Lithgow City Council invites you to a free one-hour workshop to learn simple ways to make your home and property safer.

The Making Home Bushfire Safe workshop will offer expert advice on fire safe domestic land management, landscaping and asset protection, Bushfire Attack Levels (BAL) when building a new home or doing renovations, and water and access for emergency services.

The workshop will draw on the knowledge of Bushfire Consultant Steven Houghton, who specialises in bushfire planning policy. Steven has 15 years’ of experience working for Fire & Rescue NSW and is the Director of Statewide Bushfire Consulting.

The workshop will take place at Eskbank House Museum on 27 April 2022 at 3-4pm. Numbers are limited and registration is required. To register, visit here

The program has been made possible by funding from the Federal Government’s National Bushfire Recovery Agency and the NSW State Government’s Resilience NSW as part of the Bushfire Community Recovery and Resilience Fund.

Please contact Lithgow Council on 6354 9999 or email  for more information.
