Are You Bushfire Ready?
As I am writing this eNews, bush fires are alight in Ellenbrook, Bullsbrook, Muchea, Chittering, GinGin, Toodyay, Mandurah and Bindoon. Many of our members have businesses in or near these areas. Are you prepared for fire?
On the 28th October, members attended our Bushfire Awareness forum presented by David Gossage (Preplan Pty Ltd) and Michael Brown (Veritas Insurance). The advice offered was invaluable with all who attended agreeing that the forum was worthwhile, interesting and informative. Most importantly, it was focused and relevant to businesses of the nursery and garden industry.
"I found the presentation great and will be following up on some of the things discussed. We have always recognised bushfire as our greatest risk (or at least the one with the greatest consequence) and it was great to hear some other discussion rather than just doing whatever we thought would be good. We hope to follow up with David and implement some of the things he discussed," Ben Croxford (Nuts About Natives).
If you missed the forum but would like to arrange a meeting with either one of our presenters to discuss and assess your level of risk and ways in which you can implement strategies to save not only your business but potentially the lives of you and your staff, please contact:-
