Bushfire-Resilient Housing Toolkit
The Canberra Region Joint Organisation (CRJO) and its partners have released a Bushfire-Resilient Housing Toolkit for residents, industry and councils to help make existing homes more bushfire ready.
Over the past two decades Australia has experienced a number of devastating fires. Eight local government areas across South Eastern NSW are home to some of the worst affected and most vulnerable communities.
The intensity and severity of bushfires is projected to increase; so too will the impacts. We need to improve the bushfire resilience of existing homes.
The toolkit includes:
- A 10-page guide created to help other councils replicate the project across their regions
- A 10-page guide developed for the insurance sector outlining the increased bushfire risk and housing resilience opportunities
- A 10-page messaging guide developed to help councils engage the community on the topic of bushfire resilience and drive behaviour change within their regions
- Media release templates and
- Social media assets.
This project is proudly funded by the New South Wales Government, with assistance from Local Government NSW, the Minderoo Foundation, Edge Environment and the Insurance Council of Australia.
