Hawkesbury Urged To ‘Get Ready’ For Bush Fire Season

6 Sep 2016

Member for Hawkesbury Dominic Perrottet today encouraged the community to embrace ‘Get Ready Weekend 2016’ for the bush fire season.

Volunteer firefighters will be out in force holding events and activities in Hawkesbury on September 10 and 11.

Members of the public are urged to attend and learn how they can be prepared for bushfires as well as know how to act by taking some simple steps to ensure the safety of themselves and their loved ones.

There are many events planned across the state, including firefighting displays, opportunities to get aboard a fire truck, take a picture with a firefighter and see some of their specialist equipment.

Local Bunnings stores are also hosting volunteer firefighters and displays so people can talk to them about the simple things they can do to reduce their bush fire risk.

Mr Perrottet said ‘Get Ready Weekend’ is an important part of entering the warmer months where there is a greater risk of bush and grass fires.
“Attending one of these locations will be time well spent to ensure the protection and safety of you and your family,” Mr Perrottet said.
