Safe distances save lives—be prepared for bushfire season
During the hot summer in Canberra, the fire risk increases. It’s a good idea to be prepared in case of bushfires.
To stay safe, take some time to clean out your gutters and remove flammable material from around your property.
Have an evacuation plan for emergencies, and make sure it includes a home safety kit with a torch, batteries, battery powered radio and first aid supplies.
Be aware of fire restrictions in the area.
