Preparing for fire threats
A number of Australian dairy regions sit in the most fire-prone areas in the world. Spring is a good time to plan and prepare to best protect your family, staff, livestock, dairy and machinery from all types of fire threat. Thanks to the willingness of Gippsland's dairy farmers to share the lessons they learned during the 2009 Bushfires, Dairy Australia and the CFA have been able to collaborate and produce the ‘Prepare your dairy farm for fire threat' toolkit and a short video here below. By using this toolkit, you can create your own preparation plan. The toolkit can also help you better manage any emergency situation (for example flood or storm), reduce disruption to your dairy business and save the lives of you and your family.
