Don't put fuel on the fire and starve a fire before it starts. by removing as much fuel as you can. Fuel is anything that can burn easily. This would include woodpiles from your winter fireplace, stacked up near or against your home, Mulch in your garden beds and sticks and leaf debri in your property.
Upto 20 metres around your house and buildings should be cleared to help keep your home or building safe. This would include raking up sticks, leaves and disposing of them properly.
Keep the minimum amount of engine fuels possible, and keep all fuel containers in a shed away from the house. Gas bottles and cylinders should be located on a level, non combustible surface on the side of the property facing away from the most likely direction of a fire. Pressure relief valves on cylinders must be directed away from buildings, and the cylinders must be firmly tethered to ensure they remain upright.
