Did you know that more than 35 suburbs in Adelaide's fringes are in bushfire prone areas?
As Adelaide temperatures increase, dead trees and shrubs become very susceptible to catching fire.
The slightest spark or flame can cause a bushfire which often results in millions of dollars in damage and even loss of lives.
Preparation throughout the year is an essential key to ensure that you, your property and your family survive a bushfire.
It is everyone’s obligation to help avoid bushfires by clearing areas near you of dead trees and shrubs that could potentially start a fire.
Check there is no branches overhanging your roof or touching your walls. Trees overhanging your house will drop dead leaves and twigs into your gutters.
