Are You At Risk?
Assessing the risk to your property
When assessing the risk to your property and surrounding areas, always bare in mind that no two properties are alike.
Here are some of the things that you may need to address or assess to help evaluate the bushfire risk to your property and the potential for disastrous results:
- Is there a natural path for the bushfire to approach? E.g. sloping hills, valleys, trees, scrub and bushland. These conditions can assist in creating high winds, increased radiant heat and fast moving fire fronts
- Evaluate the house location in relation to the above
Is the home at the top or bottom of the valley or slope or near trees?
- Different locations create different risks
