BRU­TAL FIRE SEA­SON

Galston, Glenorie and Hills Rural News - - Community News -

Aus­tralian Pump In­dus­tries, Aus­tralia’s lead­ing fire pump sup­plier, has rushed to get a new ver­sion of their ‘Bush­fire Sur­vival Guide’ out to the pub­lic. Called “Aussie Pumps Fire Ready”, the doc­u­ment is a user’s guide to pre­pare for the worst.

“Too of­ten, home­own­ers and even farm­ers are a bit cav­a­lier about the fire sea­son. They don’t start to pre­pare equip­ment, carry out el­e­men­tary pro­tec­tion around the home or farm build­ing or even en­sure ad­e­quate wa­ter sup­ply around those lo­ca­tions un­til they see smoke on the hori­zon”, said Aussie Pumps’ Brad Far­ru­gia.

“Our ‘Sur­vival Guide’ cov­ers the es­sen­tials but delves into de­tail of­ten not found even in doc­u­ments pro­duced by gov­ern­ment funded bod­ies”, he said. “For ex­am­ple, it gives de­tails on how to in­stall the sprin­kler sys­tem on the roof of the house. You can’t do that when you see the fire com­ing. If you’re in a vul­ner­a­ble area, you need to move im­me­di­ately”, said Far­ru­gia.

Aus­tralian Pump’s front­line prod­uct is the Aussie Fire Chief. This prod­uct has been on the mar­ket for a num­ber of years and has won ac­co­lades all around the world. It’s re­garded as the world’s best por­ta­ble light­weight fire fight­ing pump, based on its per­for­mance, char­ac­ter­is­tics and fea­tures.

The ‘Sur­vival Guide’ deals with prod­uct se­lec­tion but stresses the need for an ad­e­quate wa­ter sup­ply to be avail­able, prop­erly pre­pared to be de­fended. “There’s no point wor­ry­ing about get­ting ready to fight a fire when you smell smoke”, said Far­ru­gia. “The time to get or­gan­ised is now!” he said.

Free copies of the’ Aussie Fire Sur­vival Guide’ are avail­able from au­tho­rised Aussie Pump dis­trib­u­tors, CRT lo­ca­tions, Land­mark, NRI and ir­ri­ga­tion and mower shops around Aus­tralia.

The com­pany prints huge quan­ti­ties of this vi­tal doc­u­ment and stress that they are avail­able free. The doc­u­ment is avail­able on­line at www.aussiepumps.com.au!

The Aussie Bush­fire Sur­vival guide gives home own­ers and prop­erty own­ers an in­sight into pre­par­ing their prop­er­ties ahead of a hor­rific bush­fire sea­son.
