This guide has information to help you protect your home and family.
It explains ways of making your property less vulnerable to bushfire attack, will help you make the correct choices if a bushfire threatens and incorporates a template for your Bushfire Survival Plan.
Community Fire Safe is a program coordinated by the CFS that encourages residents living in bushfire risk areas to form small groups and work together in preparing and protecting their families and properties from bushfire. These groups can consist of just a few families living in the same street or area who face a common bushfire threat.
Bushfires can occur without warning and can quickly affect your location. If you are travelling in the country for work or leisure, you need to think about bushfire safety.
This leaflet will help you manage your country travel plans and help you prepare yourself and your vehicle in case a bushfire does occur.
All businesses, organisations and individuals who work in or visit bushfire risk areas need to develop and do their own Bushfire Safety and Survival policies, plans and procedures.
Use this guide to prepare your people and your business for the next bushfire season.
We have developed a workshop designed to provide women with a safe non-threatening setting to learn new skills to protect their families and livelihoods. To see upcoming events please visit the Community Programs page.
Reducing fire risk in gardens
Urban landscapes, including parks and gardens, can be planned and designed to minimise vulnerability and strengthen resistance to fire. Careful attention needs to be paid to design, plant selection, materials and product selection and the maintenance of our garden environments.
The Botanic Gardens of Adelaide Plant Selector+ is a comprehensive, relevant and user-friendly online resource to help achieve more sustainable urban landscapes through improved plant selections.
Involve your kids in bushfire planning
The Bushfire CRC has produced this interactive PDF (e-book) for parents on how to talk to children about bushfire preparation and safety. This book can be read on a computer or tablet and can also be printed.
This guide provides details of who to contact and what to do if you have been affected by a bushfire.
If you or someone you know needs to write a Bushfire Plan and wants information that is easy to read and understand, see our brochures in Easy English.
Our Easy English publications are also available in other languages.
