Bushfire Resilience webinar "Your vegetation - what you need to know"

Get bushfire resilient - information for households in rural areas and on the urban fringe

Bushfire Resilience Inc. is an independent community-led organization that provides information to people living with bushfire risk. We provided ten free webinars across 2020 and 2021, with another series planned for 2022.

In response to viewer feedback, this year’s series will cover topics such as horses and bushfire and why kids should get involved in the family bushfire plan.

Our previous webinars have been well attended and 95% of our viewers said the presenters inspired them to take action to reduce their bushfire risks.

Once again we have assembled a team of eminent presenters and experts who will discuss the various issues, strategies and actions to get bushfire resilient.

Our webinars give you information about fire preparation to assist in better decision making. Our presenters are experts in fire science, fire behaviour and the best safety strategies for households living with fire risk.

Be inspired to take action to reduce your bushfire risks. Register now to be informed about our free webinars and the suite of Bitesize videos we will create during the 2022 series.
