Hornsby Shire Council is advising residents to be prepared for catastrophic fire conditions it will face, Tuesday 12 November.

There is no reason for immediate concern, as there are currently no bushfires in or near Hornsby Shire, but residents need to be ready for the potentially dangerous conditions.

If anybody’s property is possibly at risk, they need to prepare a bushfire survival plan.

Instructions on preparing a bushfire survival plan can be found on the Rural Fire Service website: www.rfs.nsw.gov.au.

Hornsby Shire Council will be closely monitoring the situation and providing regular updates on its Facebook page. Search for Hornsby Shire Council on Facebook to follow the page.
