Premier Gladys Berejiklian said the NSW Government has worked closely with the Rural Fire Service (RFS) and Resilience NSW to ensure the state is as prepared as it can be for the upcoming bushfire season.
“We are as prepared as we can be, but it’s also important the community understands the important role they play in having a well-prepared property and fire plan,” Ms Berejiklian said.
“It takes five minutes to make or improve a plan that will give your property and your family the best chance of survival should you be threatened by a bushfire."
