'The Complete Bushfire Safety Book' covers every aspect of protecting your family, your home and yourself from bushfire - from designing a house and garden which will not burn easily, to deciding when it's time to evacuate and how to fight off fire that is actually threatening your home, right through to a guide to the most humane way to destroy animals which have been critically injured. This is a comprehensive and unparalleled guide which has the potential to save lives right across Australia.
The book, which is endorsed and recommended by fire authorities across the nation, has something for everyone, no matter where they are - after all in the past 15 years two-thirds of all houses destroyed by bushfires have been in the suburbs of Sydney and Melbourne. So whether you're in a city suburb, a rural town or in the bush itself, this guide has valuable information for you.
Chapters cover Bushfire Cycles, How Bushfire Attacks Houses, How to Prepare for Bushfire Season, Travelling in Bushfire Season, Evacuate or Stay?, Emergency Checklists and more.
