Jeeralang Junction, Moe South and Crossover residents can receive expert fire safety advice without stepping past their front gate, courtesy of a CFA service designed to provide tailored advice on-site.

CFA’s Community Safety Manager, John Crane, is urging locals to take advantage of the Home Bushfire Advice Service appointments available free of charge over the coming month.

“Unfortunately many homes across Gippsland have been affected by bushfire this year,” Mr Crane said.

“With the seasons changing and the weather cooling we need to start thinking about what we might be able to do over the cooler months to prepare for next summer.

“The work that you do on your home now can make a difference.

“This service from CFA is delivered at your home, meaning it’s all about you and where you live. Our guys are very effective when it comes to assessing the best possible fire season preparations you can make this season according to your particular location, time and budget.

“You might be someone who’s never thought about bushfire safety before, or you might have done some preparation and planning already and just want to make sure you’re on the right track. Either way we can walk you through what you need to know based on your individual circumstances.”

CFA is available to visit homes between 7 May and 31 May 2013. Appointments are available during business hours midweek and between 9.00am and 3.00pm on Saturdays.

To book the Home Bushfire Advice Service:

  • Call CFA on (03) 9262 8501 during business hours.
  • Call the Victorian Bushfire Information Line on 1800 240 667 (8.00am – 6.00pm)
