In Australia, our harsh landscape and climate are demanding the need for our homes and towns to significantly increase measures to ensure fire safety. Aside from the growing need for bushfire protection, a new Australian Bushfire Construction Standard AS3959-2009 has been implemented, this standard is now mandatory. Due to the different forest types in Australia, it can make it difficult to contain small start-up fires or preventative activity to hazard reduce potential fires from occurring. Within our bush, we have a vast array of multiple different wildlife that call it home, which makes our backyard even more special to protect, in addition to our people’s homes. In the recent fires around the country, in addition to hundreds of homes, over 1 billion animals have been lost. It’s devastating to say the least.
