Understanding fire danger in the Adelaide Hills
If you live in the Adelaide Hills or on the outer edge of Adelaide, you are at bushfire risk. For you, your family and your community's sake it is critical you acknowledge that risk and take the appropriate action to be bushfire ready.
Preparing for a bushfire
Knowing what you need to do to prepare your home and property for bushfire is essential for the safety of you and your family. Even if your plan is to leave well before a bushfire threatens you can never fully predict what may happen that prevents your leaving. To be forced to stay and defend when you have not prepared could well cost you your life.
