Fire Safety – Are you prepared?

By Alistair Gray

Are you ready for the bushfire season? On Bribie, we all feel snug and secure, despite being surrounded by bush and recent burn-offs on the Island. We only need to look to Europe and the impacts of the fires in Greece or the recent fires in Hawaii, to know things have changed and our planet is heating up. We are enjoying an unseasonably warm winter here in Queensland, what winter? It is more like a warm spring.

It is time for us all to stop and check our fire safety preparedness for a few minutes. The worst thing we can do is assume all is okay. If we face a fire emergency, time will be of the essence. What plans do you have in place if you must vacate your home in a hurry or even leave the Island?

You can check your preparedness and plans by going to the Queensland Fire Service website:
