Property Bushfire Preparation -
Very often, the difference between saving your home in a bushfire and losing it to the flames is pretty much determined by what you do to prepare your property. Thanks to climate change, the risk of fire is starting earlier in the year, so now is a good time to take steps to reduce the bushfire risk to your property. Fire season is also lasting longer, so it’s never too late to prepare.
A well prepared home is more likely to survive a bushfire than one that has not been prepared. The best thing you can do to prevent a bushfire from reaching your home is to create a safety zone around your house and property and this task should be conducted well before a fire threatens . Trees, grass, shrubbery and waste material are all fuel for bushfires, so minimizing the amount of vegetation around your home (fuel load reduction) will lessen the risk of fire damage to your possessions and your property. Keeping a safe distance from flammable vegetation is just the first step in fire disaster prevention. Making sure the area immediately around your home is clear of combustible material is also very important.
All this may seem a bit overwhelming at first, we are here to help.
Trim Clear will assist you in preparing your property and home to be bushfire ready. We will meet with you to discuss your requirements, take a walk around your property to identify foreseeable risks and go to work for you. The majority of work will likely be hands on using hand tools, chainsaws, pole saws, brush cutters, and mowers. and if the task is not within our means I will suggest and organise other contractors with specialist equipment to assist, this might be with heavy equipment such as a slasher, mobile mulcher, dozer etc.
So who are we? Well let’s start with me. I am an experienced Firefighter, ex Captain of a State Government Forestry Brigade, represented an SA Government department on several bushfire related committees, have a great understanding of fire behaviour in the Mount Lofty Ranges, and have served with the SES. If I can’t do it myself then where ever possible I will employ experienced firefighters to assist, someone who has an operational understanding of fire behaviour, the risks and potential impact points, all this will be beneficial for you and your properties bushfire preparation.
