The fire that you may not be expecting

January 31, 2012

Bushfires pose a threat to a significant number of Australian households.

You don’t need to be living in an isolated ‘bush’ location to be affected; quiet suburban properties can be at risk.


Every household should assess its ‘at risk’ potential and have a working Bushfire Survival Plan that every household member is fully aware of and has practice in executing.


Being knowledgeable about bushfire behaviour, recognising the characteristics of high fire danger conditions, taking appropriate action on such days and being familiar with ways you may access, receive and respond to alerts may be critical to survival.


There is a good reason around fire alarm legislation and the plethora of information relating to precaution, prevention and action.


It can help save lives and property.


Would you know what to do if a fire started in your home or if bushfires posed a potential risk? Would your children?


Ensure your own household, or residents of any property you own, are as best prepared as possible in the event of a fire emergency.
