  • Check your insurance is up-to-date and you are not under insured.
  • Clear away timber, dead vegetation, undergrowth and long grass.
  • Clean gutters to remove leaves and rubbish.
  • Make a firebreak around your home.
  • Do not deposit tree loppings, grass clippings etc behind your property.
