Home Improvements for increased Bushfire Protection (Victorian CFA -2010)


The introduction of building regulations that require consideration of bushfire protection measures to Australian Standard 3959-2009 (AS 3959) mean that residents who are building or renovating now have a clear direction on how to increase protection to their homes. However, the majority of residences in bush fire prone areas pre-date those regulations, meaning existing houses are unlikely to achieve the increased levels of bushfire protection delivered by the new Standard. In 2010 The Building Commission and Victorian Country Fire Authority (CFA) joined together to provide practical advice to those who wish to upgrade their existing homes to be better protected from bushfires.
