Disaster Preparedness: Bushfire

During the hot, dry months, bushfires start abruptly. Advanced preparation is a must for any responsible business to reduce risk and damage

Bushfire is a harsh reality of life in some parts of the world, especially during the hot, dry months, when the slightest spark is all it takes. Bushfires start abruptly and can burn for days or weeks, spreading rapidly over vast expanses of land and causing devastating damage to property (and even loss of life).

Advance preparation is a must for responsible business owners, but where do they start? What should they pack in the emergency kit? And what about evacuation procedures?

The second of Liberty’s Disaster preparedness guides is designed to answer these questions - and more - and help business owners prepare for and cope with a bushfire that threatens their property and livelihood.
