Bushfire season is something that we should all be wary of. Bushfires can happen at any time to anyone near bushfire prone areas. They can be really terrifying especially if it has already spread to the point where it is hard to control or contain. The feeling of hopelessness because of your inability to fight this kind of disaster can just be overwhelming. So, the best defense you can have is knowledge and preparation.
First let us understand bushfire events. Bushfires can be grouped into three categories namely flame, radiation and ember. Out of these three, we are going to focus more on ember attacks. Ember attacks are the most common and are often the main cause of ignition mechanism. Flying embers and/or wind-borne debris can travel kilometers which can potentially land on your property.
In constructing a building, you do not only consider its foundation and design. Thinking about its safety is equally important. There are natural disasters that come our way unexpectedly such as earthquakes, storms and cyclones and being prepared is never a bad thing. One safety feature that you can install in a building are bush fire sprinklers.
A properly sized and located water tank is essential, as during a bushfire, pressure will drop from water mains as the water is used by other residents and Fire Fighters. A drop in water pressure can be as significant as having only a dribble of water from your garden hose. Garden hoses only deliver a limited volume of water.
For this reason, larger canvas hoses are preferable for property protection purposes. Generally, large fire rated percolating canvas hoses and the necessary couplings are a more efficient and safer alternative. We use and prefer Storz and Camlock couplings which are the same couplings used by both NSW fire services.
Fire pumps are a vital part of a house's fire suppression system in the event of a bushfire. It is responsible for pulling water from some dedicated source such as a dam, river, pool or water-storage tank.
Fire pumps are available in various sizes and a must for fire fighting & water transfer. Fire pumps serve as critical and essential components of water-based fire protection systems, such as fire rated sprinkler system or water-spray for domestic, commercial and industrial applications. We recommend the use of a high quality fire pumps from the range at Honda Davey and Aussie Pumps with various start options available such as electric start (solar powered), pull start or remote start via SMS app on your mobile phone. Their range of both fire and water transfer pumps are built to last and reliable for the Australian conditions.
Bushfires in Australia are natural events that occur during the driest and hottest months of the year. This can be attributed to the country’s hot, humid and dry climate. If you have a home, warehouse or facility that’s built in an area surrounded by trees and bushes, you have to be prepared of a bushfire coming your way. It is a very real and serious threat, one that needs more than just manpower or resources to battle as it happens.
