Bunnings Warehouse Tamworth is collaborating with the NSW Rural Fire Service (NSW RFS) for the annual Get Ready Weekend which aims to help the inhabitants of Tamworth learn about the preparation of the forest fire season.
The D.I.Y. The workshops will offer useful tips and useful resources on how to prepare the house to be ready for the bushfire.
NSW RFS Commissioner Shane Fitzsimmons said the annual campaign is a great opportunity for locals to learn simple, but vital steps that will make a big difference in the case of a forest fire.
"Given the early start of the forest fire season this year, it is very important to be prepared," said Commissioner Fitzsimmons.
"It could be as simple as mowing the lawn, clearing debris and flammable materials on your property, cleaning gutters, and talking to your family about what you would do if a forest fire started near them."
