The Risk Management flipside of good weather
August 31st, 2017

While it has been a pretty great winter in Melbourne and around Sydney, this good fortune could give way to some potentially catastrophic events for people and their property as the relative risk of bushfire rapidly increases.

Associate Professor Matthias Boer, at UWS’ Hawkesbury Institute for the Environment has been quoted in the media as saying “Much of the Sydney Basin is dangerously primed for major bushfires, at least until it receives major rainfall. Get ready for a bad bushfire season this year. Unless we get significant rainfalls, the fuel is not likely to become wetter.”

The BOM doesn’t think that is very likely based on their latest outlook for the next 3 months.

Now is the time to:

  • -Sort out your bushfire plan (see one of our previous articles here)
  • -Check the adequacy of your insurance coverage
  • -Make sure the sum insured value you choose for your buildings includes the likely increase in the actual cost of rebuilding in a bushfire prone area to meet current Building Code of Australia and Local Council requirements.

We had to share these wonderful words from the Lighthouse Foundation's Michelle Michie, Philanthropy Manager. The Lighthouse Foundation were one of our 2016/ 2017 Community Education Program Grant Recipients.....

“We are immensely grateful for this support which has been crucial in life changing work which has helped so many young homeless girls get off to a healthy start with their newborns. I wish you could experience what I do, when I see these girls graduate to independent living with a strong attachment to their child. Without this help, so many of them would not have been able to manage, and would have given up their baby into the state care system.

Thank you for the partnership, and the tangible feeling that the Ansvar team truly cared about homeless children and young people, and that you had their back.”
