7 jobs to help prepare your home for bushfire season
You don’t have to live in regional Victoria to prepare your home for summer. Undertaking home and garden maintenance for bushfire season is essential to being prepared.
Bureau of Meteorology (BoM) records show that during El Niño years, winter-spring periods have been drier in eastern Australia over the last ten years. There is a significantly higher risk of bushfires occurring this summer in Victoria as a result of these drier conditions.
Bushfires can occur where the suburbs meet the bush or where grass or parkland surround urban areas. Home maintenance and preparation could help reduce the risk of damage to your property from bushfires.
