Bushfires in Australia increased by 40% from 2008 to 2013. This worrying statistic was highlighted in the intro to last week's SBS Insight program: Line of Fire. And this article on The Conversation tells us that: "future bushfires will be worse - we need to adapt now". This is very sobering viewing and reading.

Dear Community
As we move toward the beginning of the summer months and into the statutory Bush Fire Danger Period now is a good time to start preparing our home and surrounds in preparation for the fire season. In July of this year we had already seen a number of fires cause concern in the Blue Mountains for fire fighters as well as in a number of other communities across NSW. As I write this Victoria and South Australia are responding to bush fires and in the north of NSW a number of bush fires are creating headaches for fire fighters.
