Fire Up! Surf Coast



Fire Up! is a program to help residents get fire-ready before bushfire season.

This year's Fire Up! program will see us attending free community events, where you can find out:

  • What are my risks?
  • How do grassfires and bushfires behave?
  • How can I prepare my house and property?
  • How do I protect myself and my family in a fire?
  • Is my farm as well prepared as it could be?
  • Where can I find out information about local fires?
  • What actions can I take to help my local fire brigade?

You will find the Fire Up! team at these community events and markets. Come and talk to us and get your free copy of The Fire Game.
