Timber Sales Outlet in Brisbane Reminds Customers about Bushfire Safety



Owner of timber sales outlet in Brisbane reminds friends, customers and neighbours that it is crucial to have a bushfire evacuation plan and stick to it.

Brisbane, QLD, 03 March 2017 - A lot of business owners talk about how they value their customers and their community. But some actually make the effort to serve their communities beyond the standard business/customer relationship. Jack Kyle, owner of Narangba Timbers, is a business owner who consistently does his best to help make his community better.

Recently, on their company blog, Mr Kyle provided what has become an annual plea to those in his community to have a bushfire evacuation plan. Bushfires are dangerous. They can spread a lot faster than people think and many lives are lost because people didn’t have a plan and didn’t understand just how dangerous bushfires can be.

According to Mr Kyle: “We love the timber business, but we love our family, friends and neighbours even more. So, once a year we like to remind readers of our blog about how important it is to have a bushfire escape plan ready. Bushfires can be deadly and it is important to know when to leave.”

Mr Kyle continued: “ We are proponents of leaving as soon as it looks like you could be in danger. As far as we are concerned, there is no such thing as evacuating your home too early when a bushfire is on its way.”

Every state in Australia has a reminder on its website to create a bushfire evacuation plan, practice it and execute it when the time is right. The basics may seem like “common sense” to some, but it is crucial to know what to do and when to do it.

It is recommended that every household have a bushfire evacuation plan and that everyone in the household understands it. Most states recommend practicing it because it can save crucial minutes in a bushfire emergency.

It is important for everyone to know their bushfire danger ratings. Those with elderly relatives or small children are advised to evacuate as early as possible. Those in areas at high risk for bushfires should know their nearest evacuation centres, bushfire safe places or meeting points. They should also know their locations and how to get there.

It is also advised that anyone in the path of or near an active bushfire pay close attention to local TV and radio for updates. Most media outlets and emergency organisations now post updates on social media.

According to Mr Kyle: “We think it is most important to have a cut and dried plan for leaving and execute it when the time comes. People tend to underestimate the danger of bushfires and think it won’t happen to them. The extra hours one gains by evacuating early can be crucial and can even save your life and those of your family.”

Mr Kyle concluded: “Don’t worry about your possessions; you can always rebuild. But only if you are alive to do so.”
