Bunnings Warehouse helps Inverell locals learn about fire season precautions with DIY workshop

Bunnings Warehouse Inverell is teaming up with the NSW Rural Fire Service (NSW RFS) for the annual Get Ready Weekend that aims to help Inverell locals get in the know about fire season preparedness. Inverell residents are encouraged to visit their local Bunnings for free Bushfire Preparedness D.I.Y. Workshops on Saturday and Sunday, September 16-17 at 12:30pm.

The D.I.Y. Workshops will offer helpful advice and handy tips on how you can prepare your home to be bushfire ready throughout the Aussie summer. NSW RFS Commissioner Shane Fitzsimmons said the Service's annual Get Ready Weekend campaign is a great chance for local families to learn simple but vital steps that will make a big difference in the event of a bushfire.

“Preparing for bush fires is easier than people may think, it could be as simple as mowing your lawn, clearing debris and flammable materials on your property, cleaning your gutters and talking to your family about what you would do if a bush fire was to start near them,” Commissioner Fitzsimmons said.
