ACT Fire and Rescue are looking for residents in Denman Prospect and Molonglo Valley to become members of the Community Fire Unit (CFU) program, to help reduce the risk of a bushfire in our community.
A Community Fire Unit (CFU) is a team of local volunteers that are trained to safeguard their homes during a bushfire until fire services arrive and it is important we get a team of volunteers to ensure we can secure a CFU trailer for Denman Prospect.
The focus of the program is on bushfire education, prevention and preparation, covering areas such as:
- Bushfire behavior
- Safe housekeeping and gardening practices
- Planning and preparation for bushfires
- Operating fire-fighting equipment
- Mop up operations
