BUSHFIRE READY

Hi BFR Facilitators

Due to the recent impacts to  property this bushfire season, the monthly theme for April is ‘Water Supply  and Pumps’

Please see information  attached:

•         Monthly Theme – Water Supply’s and Pumps – this theme has been  worked in partnership with DFES’s Environment Branch

Please use the blurb and link below  for Facebook pages / websites etc.

During a bushfire, mains water  and electricity supply can fail or be cut off.  Having an  independent water supply can help save your property.

To adequately defend your home and  surrounds an independent water supply of at least 10,000 litres should be  available.

Check your pump and generator are in good working order  before and during the bushfire season.

More information can be found  at  www.dfes.wa.gov.au

 

Please forward this information to  your Bushfire Ready Groups / Street Coordinators, other brigade volunteers,  community contacts and regional networks.

 

Kind  regards
