Bushfire season – be prepared

The bushfire danger period has arrived and the threat of major fires breaking out across New South Wales in the urban / bushland interface and rural areas is very real.

By taking a few precautionary steps people stand a much better chance of protecting their families and property from fire.

Residents in high risk areas should take measures now to prepare their properties for the bushfire season, including:

  • Clean leaves from gutters, roofs and downpipes regularly and fit quality metal leaf guards.
  • Screen vents on roof voids with fine metal wire mesh to prevent sparks from entering.
  • LPG cylinders around your home should have pressure relief valves facing outwards so that flame is not directed towards the house.
  • Keep woodpiles well away from the house and covered.
  • Cut back overhanging trees, keep grass short and rake up flammable leaves, twigs and cuttings.
  • Do not deposit tree loppings, grass clippings etc. behind your property into council reserves or bushland, as this will increase fire intensity.
  • Ensure your garden hoses are long enough to reach the perimeter boundary and make sure fire pumps, hoses and accessories are in working order.
  • Plant shrubs and trees that are less likely to ignite due to their low oil content.
  • If you have a swimming pool, have a static water supply sign placed on your front fence.
  • Consider purchasing a portable water pump to use from your swimming pool or water tank.
  • Make sure that any fire hydrants near your home are easily located and not obstructed.

These simple steps can make all the difference in protecting your home, business and family from a fire.

In the event of a fire, immediately call Triple Zero (000) from a safe location. For more information visit www.rfs.nsw.gov.au or contact your local NSWFB or Rural Fire Service (RFS) station.
