BUSHFIRE SEASON PREPARATION TIPS
BUNNINGS Warehouse Minchinbury is teaming up with the NSW Rural Fire Service as part of the annual Get Ready Weekend to help Mt Druitt and St Marys locals prepare for the upcoming fire season.
Residents are encouraged to visit the warehouse to learn about bushfire preparation as part of the bushfire preparedness DIY this Saturday and Sunday at 12.30pm.
The workshops will offer helpful advice on how you can properly prepare your home in the event of a bushfire.
NSW RFS Commissioner Shane Fitzsimmons said the Get Ready Weekend campaign was the ideal opportunity for families to learn a few steps that could make a big difference during a bushfire.
“It could be as simple as talking to your family about what you would do if a bushfire was to start near them,” Mr Fitzsimmons said.
