Installing a bushfire sprinkler system with fire water tanks is a smart way to help look after your home if you live in a bushfire prone area. Bushfire sprinkler systems work by wetting down the house and garden to reduce the effects of radiant heat, sparks, and embers. Along with an independent firefighting water supply, such as a tank or dam, these systems may make a real difference in the unfortunate event that you’ll need to use one. When installing, check your local area’s Bushfire Attack Level (BAL), a method for rating a location’s potential exposure to bushfire.
Whether you’re renting or a homeowner, ask your local rural/country fire service or fire and rescue team about preparing a bushfire action plan.
