With summer approaching it also means bushfire season is on its way. You need to make sure that your family know what to do in case of a bushfire near your home as well as taking all the necessary precautions to protect your home.

As the wind can carry embers kilometres away from the actual fire, you need to make sure you dispose of any debris around your home. Clear out any leaves and foliage from the gutters, clear any outdoor furniture and remove doormats and debris from balconies and the outdoor areas. Also check your hose for any leaks because if a fire presents itself in your street, a hose with a leak will be no help to you.

When a fire presents itself near your home you have two options. You can stay with your home and try to protect it, that is until the fire becomes to close and dangerous and the fire brigade advises you to evacuate or you can leave your home early. If you choose to stay with your home you need to wear the appropriate clothing. Wear long pants and a long sleeve top made of natural fibres like cotton or wool. You also need gloves, goggles, a hat and a facemask to protect yourself. Once you have all these, you will be prepared to hose down your home and put out any spot fires embers may start.

You should even make an evacuation plan that you can practise with the kids so you all know what to do in case of an emergency.

Make sure you pick up a copy of the Home Fire Safety Mitreplan from your nearest Mitre 10 store or download a copy form the Mitre 10 website and protect your family and home.
