5 things you can
do to help prepare
for bushfires.

Clean your gutters,
downpipes and drains

This will help remove fuel for fire and reduce the chance of a wind born embers spreading to your home.

Trim overhanging
trees and branches
around your home

Regular inspections can help prevent potential damage. Download your tree trimming guide by clicking the link below.

Clean up debris
around your property

Just like cleaning your drains and gutters this will help prevent the spread of fires.

Remove ‘piles of stuff’
close to the home

Doormats, wood piles, mulch and other burnable items all provide fuel for fires. Removing them could prevent fires spreading.

Ensure there is a hose
available that can reach
around the home

Having a hose available that can protect your home and knowing how to access it could make all the difference. Make sure you have one and it’s accessible.
