If you live in a high bushfire risk area, developing a Bushfire Survival Plan is crucial to you, your family’s and your property’s safety and survival. As the CFS say, why risk it? In an emergency it’s too late to consider your options when your emotions may negatively impact on your ability to think strategically.

Unexpected things happen in an emergency
Bushfires don’t happen at a convenient time when all family members are home and accounted for… What if it’s the weekend and you’re not home? What if the children are at school? What if you have house guests or pets? Your bushfire survival plan needs to work in different situations and adapt to changing circumstances.

Tailored plans

At SA Bushfire Solutions we don’t just use a common model or template, we take into consideration each client’s unique situation and prepare plans with the whole family in mind. Once we have a thorough understanding of your specific circumstances, we can tailor a comprehensive Bushfire Survival Plan that will detail how you can prepare and the specific actions you should take, whether you plan to stay and defend or plan to leave.

This written plan will help you understand all necessary information to assist you in safeguarding your home and will detail the actions each family member will take on fire risk days and in the event of a bushfire.

We can help you consider & plan for:

  • Potential bushfire behaviour
  • House & property preparation
  • Understanding of fire danger ratings, bushfire warnings & messages
  • Understanding of your own risks
  • Considerations for leaving early on High Fire Danger days
  • Capacity to stay & defend a bushfire
  • Personal safety
  • Physical & emotional capacity
  • Preparation of a Bushfire Survival Kit

Already have a Bushfire Survival Plan?

It is essential to practice your Bushfire Survival Plan regularly, as well as review it each year. Family circumstances change, and so should your Bushfire Survival Plan. As bushfire management experts, we’re always up to date with the latest advice and emergency management techniques, so we can review your existing Bushfire Survival Plan and advise on any changes that may be required to increase your chance of survival.

Following is a testimonial following our recent training workshop at Newhaven Wildlife Sanctuary. Feel free to contact me if you need further info:

Australian Wildlife Conservancy (AWC) is the largest private owner and manager of land for conservation in Australia, effectively protecting wildlife and their habitat across more than 6.5 million hectares at over 30 locations. Managing fire is an essential part of our work. It helps to improve habitat for threatened wildlife, preserve fire sensitive plant communities, prevent wildfire and protect assets. We recently engaged Brett to run a training workshop at Newhaven Wildlife Sanctuary in central Australia where he provided training in many aspects of fire management including aerial incendiary operation. Brett has enormous depth of knowledge and an engaging informative presentation style. He catered for the full range of skill and ability levels amongst participants and made sure everyone received the tuition they needed. We will continue to use SA Bushfire into the future and have no hesitation in recommending their services to others.
