Have you made a fire plan or revised the one from last year? Are you more prepared for Christmas than you are for a fire? Many of us worry about what hot weather will do to our local wildlife and fill the water bowls but fail to consider what we should be doing for ourselves.
Fire is a natural event in most of the wildlife habitats of south-eastern Australia and most species of plants and animals have adaptions that enable them to recover after fire. We need to prepare ourselves and our properties.
The CFA have lots of information on their website to help you plan. Remember that if you plan to leave and live you still need to have a backup plan in case you can’t leave.
Fire restrictions are now in force.
