Fire Prevention

Fire prevention starts with you - our community. We would like to provide you with the knowledge to implement safety measures to protect your family, animals and property. 

A lot of the information on this page is sourced or linked to the South Australian Country Fire Service (CFS).  The CFS Website contains a lot of information and advice that is very informative and can assist you in your preparation for the fire danger season.  Please take the time to have a look at the information at 

Preparation of your home and property is an essential key throughout the year to ensure that you, your family and your property survive.  A well prepared home is more likely to survive a bushfire than one that hasn’t been prepared.  More information can be found on how you can prepare your property at Prepare your property .
