Preparing for Bushfires

We’ve heard about the impact the drought has had on rural farmers, but what about city dwellers? With the dry weather we’ve been having, bushfire is a serious threat for this summer. Speaking with Shannon Jones, Station officer at Crows Nest Fire Station; Jackie Hammond, CEO of Blue Mountain Co; and Mick Holton, President of the Volunteer Fire Fighters Association, Zac de Silva found out what you can do to prepare yourself and your home.

The main takeaway is that it’s all about planning in advance. If you live in an area that could be threatened by bushfire, you should put together a bush fire survival plan, so that if your home does come under threat, you can act quickly.
