With the first total fire bans declared today for parts of South Australia due to severe weather conditions, it’s a reminder that bushfire season is just around the corner.

People living in or near the bush, including those in suburban fringe areas are in danger of experiencing a bushfire.

The devastating Sampson Flat bushfires almost three years ago were a sobering reminder of the need to be well prepared for the fire danger season. And it’s never too late to make sure your family and property have the best chance of survival.

Visit the Country Fire Service website for information on how prepare for and survive the bushfire season.
