Free Bushfire Resilience Rating App

Published on Wednesday, 25 October 2023 at 11:16:01 AM

Australians now have access to a free app to better prepare their home from bushfire risk and help put downward pressure on insurance premiums. The Albanese Government contributed $3 million to support the groundbreaking work of the Resilient Building Council (RBC) who launched their free Bushfire Resilience Rating app on Monday 23 October 2023.

Households can now measure the bushfire resilience of their own home through a star-rating system and receive a customised action plan to make practical, evidence-based bushfire safety improvements to their homes. As tasks are completed, their home becomes safer and the home’s Resilience Rating is updated through the app.

Over 1,200 households from bushfire impacted areas helped co-design and trial the app, undertaking actions that resulted in an average 67% reduction in the likelihood of their home igniting in a bushfire.

The app is available here.
