Parts of West Brisbane are a blend of bushland, residential and rural areas so the area is particularly of risk of catching fire. As summer approaches, the Rural Fire Brigades Association of Queensland, together with the Brisbane City Council, hopes to raise public awareness on bushfire mitigation and prevention by hosting free information nights at various community hubs this October and November.
“If you want to learn how to prepare your property, how to update your bushfire survival plan and get answers to any questions you have about the bushfire season,” a spokesperson for the Queensland Fire Emergency Services said.
The sessions will take place in these areas, whilst observing COVID-19 guidelines for public gatherings:
