Local Fire Services are urging residents to begin preparing their families and properties for the bushfire season ahead. If you live or travel near bushland, you are at risk of being affected by a bushfire.
Taking simple steps to ensure you are prepared can make a significant difference in the event of a bushfire.
Cleaning gutters, mowing your lawn, removing flammable materials from your property and discussing your fire safety plan with your family are important steps to take prior to fire season.
It is also vital to check that your Pumps Australia firefighting pump and equipment is in good working order before fire season beings.
Inspect your engine oil levels and flush oil if necessary, ensure air and fuel filters are clean and check to see if the engine starts.
If your pump is in working order, check your hose to ensure there are no leaks and that a water source is readily available.
If you are experiencing any difficulties with your pump, the expert technicians at Pumps Australia can perform a full service, or our friendly sales team can assist you in selecting a new pump specific to your needs.
