    Default Fire safe

    What's in your fire safe kit? What strategies do you intend to use to be ready? What's your trigger point?

    Code red or catastrophic we head to town for the day complete with portacot.
    Prep wise we have our yard eaten out by the sheep so there is no grass left. We've already harvested the crops around the house which makes things a bit safer.
    If things get bad we'll be sitting in our shed in the car and leaving as soon as the fire is gone. Sheltering in the house isn't really an option for us because its an ancient weatherboard with lots of spots for embers to get in.

    Yep. We have a fire trailer with a petrol pump on it that carries 1000l of water.
