If you live on the urban edge, protect your home from wildfire this summer.

Form a 20m safety zone around your house with paving, gravel or short, well-watered green lawn. Keep this area free of overhanging branches, and debris like dead leaves and twigs.

Also avoid having trees and bushes adjacent to the house, and creepers on the walls.
