Get Ready Weekend

Are you ready to take the first step in being better prepared for bush fires?

Get Ready Weekend provides an opportunity for you to engage with your local brigade, find out about the bush fire risk in your area and to plan and prepare for the coming bush fire season.

This year, brigades will be offering a number of ways to participate in Get Ready Weekend, from fire station events to discussing your fire plan online.

Despite physical distancing restrictions associated with Coronavirus (COVID-19) Get Ready Weekend will proceed however brigades may offer some alternative formats this year.

This year Get Ready Weekend will be available in three different formats:

  • Local Event
  • Online Meeting
  • Social Media campaign

If you are attending face to face Get Ready events, please continue to observe NSW Health guidelines.
