Are You Bushfire Ready?

Bushfires are unfortunately the downside to our summer season and here in the Shire of Gingin we've had our fair share of them. Typically, Western Australia’s bushfire season in the Wheatbelt starts in November and continues through to April. They often start suddenly and without warning.

The impact of bushfires on a community can be devastating and may take years to recover from so it is very important to understand the bushfire risk to your family and home, and know what to do in the event a bushfire starts.

The Department of Fire and Emergency Services (DFES) recently rolled out the Are You Ready? and Five Minute Fire Chat campaigns which replace the previous bushfire communications campaign known as 'Prepare. Act. Survive'. This campaign has been devised to better engage the community, and we strongly advise you to check out the link below:
