Are we prepared for a shocking fire season? Is everybody ready to spot the first wisp of smoke in the trees? The undergrowth is thick and our defences are thin.
Who do we ring – 000, the local fire station, or both? We must act fast to stop explosive bushfires taking hold of our forests.
Are we organised? Are our communications reliable and timely? Are we ready for an emergency at 3am?
Maybe we need large community meetings soon, to plan, clarify and explain responses. Let’s get ready!
