Knowing what you need to do to prepare your home and property for bushfire is essential for the safety of you and your family. Even if your plan is to leave well before a bushfire threatens you can never fully predict what may happen that prevents your leaving. To be forced to stay and defend when you have not prepared could well cost you your life. The CFS Bushfire Ready Assessment Tool is a practical online process that will help you recognise exactly what you need to do to prepare your property.
Through a "pick and drop" interactive online function you are able to place familiar combustible icons around a house to represent your property's scenario. Once complete hit enter and the interactive tool graphically demonstrates your level of preparedness. If you are not prepared to the recommended level the system will advise of those things necessary to improve your safety and become Bushfire Ready.
