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.
