Using Green Climber to create fire breaks

Australia is facing an increasing risk from bushfires

Due to its dry conditions and eucalypt forests, but more importantly due to an increase in the length of the fire season and increasing severity of droughts and dry spells as a result of climate change.

These bushfires can affect anyone, anywhere.

The summer of 2019/20 has proved that built up areas in densely populated areas are just as at risk as remote and rural areas.

Fire-fighting resources alone are often not enough to protect properties. The safest way to fight a fire is to prevent its spread.

This involves the removal of fuel for fires to burn, especially near properties and built up areas. This kind of buffer zone is commonly referred to as a ‘fire break’.

It is important to prepare homes, properties and families before bushfire strikes.

It is important to prepare homes, properties and families before bushfire strikes. The most common type of fire break is a ‘reduced fuel zone’ fire break.

This type still has vegetation present, but it is generally no higher than 50mm. These fire breaks provide access for people and vehicles.

It does not stop a fire, but slows it down and allows more time to combat it and reduces the intensity of the blaze, thus protecting any properties in the path of the fire.

The green climber is the safest, quickest and easiest way to create firebreaks, especially in inaccessible and unsafe areas.

With ever expanding residential development in growing cities there is an increasing fire danger risk in Australia, and we urge you to take measures to minimise the threat.

Unprepared properties are not only at risk themselves, but also presents increased danger for surrounding properties.
