Bushfire authorities urge people to be ready for summer with a safety plan. The encyclopedic Essential Bushfire Safety Tips has everything you need to know to make your bushfire plan with confidence. Essential Bushfire Safety Tips is a condensed version of Joan Webster's acclaimed The Complete Bushfire Safety Book, specially written for those who prefer the convenience of categorized dot points set out in an easy-find, easy to understand way. Bushfire tragedies need not happen. Homes need not be destroyed. Lives need not be endangered. Post-bushfire scientific research has found that 90 per cent of homes can be saved from even the fiercest wildfires when defended by one or more people over the age of 10 who know what to do. In the widespread conflagrations we now experience, householders cannot expect a fire unit to be available on each doorstep. Bushfire safety is a personal responsibility. The purpose of Essential Bushfire Safety Tips is to enable and empower this process. Essential Bushfire Safety Tips contains over 2,000 authenticated tips, covering every known bushfire danger and safety factor. Its pocket format makes it ideal to keep in the kitchen drawer, car glove compartment or purse.
