Bushfire seasons are getting longer, and the number of catastrophic bushfire events is increasing, which makes it more critical for communities to understand their level of risk and ensure they take the right steps to be prepared.
We’ve released two fact sheets to help people prepare for future bushfire seasons.
The Bushfire awareness fire fact sheet provides information about the causes of bushfires and how to ensure people are adequately insured. It also provides an explanation of Bushfire Attack Levels (BALs) and what these mean for rebuilding after a bushfire.
The Changing bushfire risk across Australia fact sheet looks at bushfire risk and includes IAG’s latest scientific observations and weather trends to help people understand how bushfire risk is changing across the country. The fact sheet also outlines the top five local government areas across each state that are likely to experience higher bushfire risk.
