Bushfires are a serious reality in rural locations.


Click here to download a Bushfire Mitigation Checklist for landowners of small rural properties.

Note this document is not a South Australian Country Fire Service publication. It was written by landholders who live in the Adelaide Hills with many years of experience as volunteer fire-fighters. We have endeavoured to make this checklist both simple and comprehensive. We offer it for your own private use without any liability for omissions or mistakes. If you need assistance, contact your local CFS brigade.

The responsibility for fire mitigation on your property is yours. You are ultimately responsible for the survival of you and your family.


Visit the South Australian Country Fire Service for more information on bushfire safety and real time alerts.
