Australia’s natural beauty is matched only by the severity of its bushfire seasons.

In this blog, we’ll shed light on Australia’s National Fire Protection Month and how Resilient Services can be your trusted ally in comprehensive bushfire planning.

Australia’s National Fire Protection Month

Australia’s unique geography and climate make it susceptible to bushfires, particularly during the hot and dry summer months. National Fire Protection Month, observed annually in September, serves as a reminder of the importance of fire safety and preparedness. During this month, communities, businesses, and government agencies come together to:

1.         Raise Awareness: National Fire Protection Month increases awareness about the dangers of bushfires and the importance of preparedness.

2.        Education: Educational programs and workshops are conducted to inform individuals and communities about fire prevention, evacuation procedures, and safe practices.

3.        Preparation: This month serves as a call to action for individuals and businesses to prepare for the upcoming fire season by creating bushfire plans and maintaining fire-resistant properties.
