Bush fires are a natural part of the Australian environment and occur regularly, but many people fail to prepare for them. When threatened by bush fires, people will often leave it too late to make critical decisions and often have few safe options left.
During a bush fire, firefighters will be working to stop the fire, but the size and intensity of a fire could mean that a fire truck may not be available to defend your home.
It is your responsibility to reduce the risk to your family and your home and take actions to survive a bush fire.The most important decision is whether you and your family will Leave Early or if you will Stay and Defend your well prepared home.
