As winter approaches and our skies dry up, we encourage you to get ready for bushfire season. There was significant rainfall over summer and where there's rain, there's growth. This means there is lots of vegetation around to fuel bushfires coming into winter.
Is your family and home at risk? Do you live within a few kilometers of bushland? Does your local area have a bushfire history? Is your home built on a slope? Do you have trees and shrubs within 20m of your house? Is your bushfire survival plan more than one year old?
If you answered 'yes' to one or more of these questions you might be at risk in the event of a bushfire. We recommend logging into your Harden Up plan and following the preparedness tips for bushfires hazards.
While thankfully no homes were threatened, a bushfire near Warwick last month is a clear reminder that we are now in bushfire season.
