At a recent bushfire planning workshop at Kergunyah participants were guided through their family fire plans.
The session was taken by Dederang brigade member Maureen Piera, Chiltern brigade member Will Vale and Captain Koala.
We left the session with plenty to think about and put into action. Some simple and practical information has given us a greater understanding of the meaning of the two options of leaving early or preparing to stay and defend.
I didn’t realise I should leave so early and based on the information given to me, I now know I’m totally unprepared to stay and defend.
