Bushfire season is here again


Well, it’s that time of year again where the mercury begins to rise and with the rising mercury comes days at the beach and hot summer nights, but unfortunately it also brings with it a more sinister side – bushfire season. And with another hot, dry scorcher being predicated, it’s even more imperative to ensure that you are properly prepared for the oncoming bushfire season.

During bushfire season, some of our greener and leafier outer suburbs need to be on alert as bushfires are a real threat and as we see most years, can tear through an area with absolute disregard, putting lives, homes and valuable, or sentimental, personal items at risk.
