Almost 500 people attended an ’80s ball for Macarthur Disability Services. Tickets sold out in five weeks, the fastest the service’s annual fund-raiser has ever sold out. Those who attended the ball, held at The Cube, included people with a disability, staff and board members from MDS, family and friends, and corporate supporters. Religions’ unity Fire is unforgiving, so be prepared EVERY year during bushfire season little fires start all the time. Either through thoughtless action or disregard for a fire ban or, worse, deliberately, humans start fires. Often they can be quickly put out with minimal damage and the incident is soon forgotten. But it should not be forgotten. Because these little fires can become big fires in a heartbeat, and that’s when people, homes and communities are suddenly in danger. This is why, as the temperatures already begin to soar, we need to be ever more vigilant during bushfire season. We saw last year just how quickly a fire can get out of control when con- ditions are right. And while there has been more rainfall this year so far, it does not mean we are now safe. The bushfire season has only just started. Rural Fire Service volunteers I have spoken with say the rain makes the undergrowth grow quickly, and then winds and high temperatures — such as we have already experienced this year — dry it out until it makes perfect kindling for a little spark. Grass fires can travel at break- neck speed, particularly when driven along by winds, and in an instant become a threat to life and property. In light of the terrible fires we saw in Wollondilly and the Blue Mountains last year, households within cooee of bushland — and in Camden that’s many of us — need a bushfire plan. Residents need to know where to go, what to take, when to leave in the event of a bushfire. Decide now, not when the fire is approaching your door, whether you will stay to defend your property or not. And, most of all, prepare your prop- erty: clean gutters, install fire sprink- ler systems, mow your lawns and keep your garden tidy. And make sure to check your insur- ance, so you can be prepared if the worst occurs. Details, tips: www.rfs.nsw.gov.au.
