Be bushfire ready with NSW RFS

BUNNINGS Warehouse Coffs Harbour is teaming up with the NSW Rural Fire Service for the annual Get Ready Weekend.

D.I.Y. workshops at Bunnings on Saturday and Sunday at 12.30pm will offer helpful advice and handy tips on how you can prepare your home to be bushfire ready for summer.

NSW RFS Commissioner Shane Fitzsimmons said the service's Get Ready Weekend campaign is a great chance for locals to learn simple but vital steps that will make a big difference in the event of a bushfire.

"Preparing for bush fires could be as simple as mowing your lawn, clearing debris and flammable materials on your property, cleaning your gutters and talking to your family about what you would do if a bushfire was to start near them.”
