ARE YOU READY FOR THE BUSH FIRE AND STORM SEASON?

With the hot weather fast approaching what chores need to be completed? Storm and bush fire season occur together, that is from October to March. With the confluence of strong dry winds and hot dry weather, caused by what is predicted to be our most significant El Nino event on record, it’s essential to be prepared. Here is a link to a weather update of the effects of El Nino for the upcoming storm season: http://www.skynews.com.au/news/national/2015/09/30/el-nino-to-make-for-hotter-and-drier-2016.html

“NRMA Insurance data shows that during the last financial year, almost half of all home insurance claims in NSW were made as a result of storm damage. This number surges during storm season with 77 per cent of annual storm-related claims occurring during the October to March period,” said NRMA Insurance Community and Sustainability Operations Manager, Lee McDougall.

ARE YOU IN A BUSH FIRE ZONE?

As the weather soars we start to consider about our outdoor environment. There is plenty of great literature about preparing your home……

Preparing your home even if you plan to leave early will see you more likely to survive a bush fire or ember attack. For more information see this article on the RFS website http://www.rfs.nsw.gov.au/plan-and-prepare/prepare-your-property

GENERAL HOME MAINTENANCE

Here are some tips from NRMA to assist in preparing your home.

  • Keep your roof in good condition and check it regularly
  • Keep gutters and downpipes clear so water can drain away quickly
  • Trim trees and overhanging branches close to the house (be aware of any overhead powerlines)
  • Check and fix any corrosion, rotten timber, termite infestations and loose fittings

EnviroFrontier is here to assist with all tree works – dead wood, lifting and clearing of branches and maintenance of the upper canopy which will mitigate the risk of broken trees, subsequent damage to property, personal risk, and also potential loss of your beautiful arbor environment.
