Understand your bushfire risk

BRI have done a fantastic job in making it accessible and understandable. Your presenters are all living legends. I am so very grateful that there are such articulate, intelligent adults in the room

All presenters were excellent and brought the information down to a level we should all be able to understand

Kevin Tolhurst and Justin Leonard's very scientific based presentations were excellent and gave me real 'meat' to digest with regards to how the fire is expected to behave & the impacts across various scenarios expected. Well done to everyone involved

The star rating presentation highlighted numerous places for potential ember attack

Houses in valleys are at greater risk

Looking at the topography on a 5 and 10 km radius to assess the wider risk to the property

These programs will change the way I will prepare for the bush fire season

To look at the property and say where does debris collect normally from the winds, because this is where embers will blow to

We feel we are heading in the right direction to better prepare and reduce the potential damage fires can do to our property

Information about ember attack was of most interest to us

Know your country, know your property, know the risks and know what to expect!!

All the info was pertinent, relevant & well presented
