Prepare now for summer

There are a few things you can do to protect yourself, your family, property and neighbours in the lead up to the Fire Danger Period. Make sure you have an emergency plan that outlines when to leave, where to go and what to take. To prepare your property clear rubbish away from around your home, cut grasses, clear gutters and relocate woodpiles away from buildings. Don't forget to check what your insurance covers.
