Imagine there has been a bush fire recently. How long will it be before another fire could occur?

Hey Firestormers!

Remember that the dryer the vegetation, the easier it is for a fire to build and spread.

One year on from the 2019/2020 summer catastrophic bushfires, the Central Coast Council took time to say ‘thank you’ to the volunteers, frontline workers and residents who helped to protect the community and give back during one of the most devastating natural disasters the Coast has ever seen. The bush fires of summer 2019/20 will leave a lasting impact on us all. As we hear the unique stories of 15 courageous locals who gave so much during this time, one common theme shines through: the strength, resilience and spirit of the Central Coast community.

The World-Heritage listed Blue Mountains area is highly flammable.

It's good to have you back
