Rural Fire Service Get Ready Weekend

posted Sep 14, 2017, 12:50 PM by Craig Bassett


Rural Fire Service brigades across the Mid-Western Region have planned a number of Get Ready Weekend events from Friday through Sunday to remind you that it’s time now to prepare your families, homes and properties for a summer predicted to pose serious bush fire threats.

Get Ready Weekend is an opportunity for residents to prepare for bush fire before it is too late.

Getting ready can be easier than you think. Even little things can make a difference during a bush fire. It is as simple as 1-2-3-4-5:

1. TRIM - overhanging trees and shrubs
2. MOW - your lawn and remove all the cut grass
3. REMOVE - material that can burn around your home
4. CLEAR - and remove all the debris and leaves from your home’s gutters
5. PREPARE - a hose or hoses that can stretch all around the house
