Get Ready Weekend: 16-17 September

Now is the time to get ready. We’re inviting you to meet local firefighters from a number of local brigades who will be conducting a range of events and activities across the Shoalhaven to help you prepare for fire season.

Did you know that where you live is one of the key elements in determining your level of bush fire risk? Research has found that around 90% of homes destroyed by bush fire are due to burning embers. Embers have the ability to travel many kilometres from the fire. This means that even if you live well away from the bush you can still be at risk.

Getting ready for the bush fire season can be easier than you think. Little things you do now can make a big difference during a bush fire. Simply by trimming overhanging trees and shrubs, keeping your grass mowed, removing flammable material, clearing up fallen debris and leaves and preparing hoses to reach around your home you can help prevent burning embers from destroying your home.

IT’S A FACT! If you follow the five simple steps to getting ready and have a bush fire survival plan you will reduce the risk to you and your home.

Working together we can all help make our communities safer this bush fire season.

The following local Rural Fire Service Brigades will be open on the following days:
