Everywhere from South Australia right up to the north of Queensland, and across to Western Australia is predicted to have an ‘above normal’ bush fire season this summer according to the RFS and a report on the Southern Australia seasonal bushfire outlook for 2015-16 .
Luckily we have ‘Thor‘ to help our firefighters this season. But if you live in a bush fire prone area – and that looks like most of NSW according to the map below – then it is a timely reminder to get prepared for the season ahead. The RFS have put together a great range of resources to help you get your home bush fire ready for the fire season ahead. Go here to download their bush fire plan and more.
Another thing to think about with such a season ahead is whether you have the right cover. We hope that none of you will have the need of insurance over the coming months, but it is definitely better to be prepared. Go here to read about the types of cover you might need.
Let’s hope that Thor keeps our beautiful state safe this summer. We love the RFS for all that they do for each and every one of us.
