CFA’s Website


false information 


on the survivability 
of homes during bushfire.

The statement

‘If you live in a high-risk bushfire area
your home will not be defendable 
on a Code Red day.’1

has absolutely no basis in fact.

It can lead to unnecessary loss of homes.

Research by bushfire scientists
into 2009 Black Saturday house losses found that:

Ø        80% of Black Saturday home defenders succeeded2
Ø        Over 2/3 of houses in the bushfire areas survived3.
