A WORKSHOP on fire safety will be held by a team from the Forever Project in Roleystone on Sunday, January 22.

In conjunction with the City of Armadale, the WA organisation will be holding a Fire: Recovery and Resilience expo designed to inspire and empower rural and urban residents to make their homes and properties fire-safe and more sustainable.

City of Armadale Mayor Henry Zelones said the drying climate in WA had resulted in an increased risk of bushfires throughout the State.

“The workshop is an opportunity for residents to learn from the experts how to protect their homes and properties from the possible threat of a bushfire, and fine tune or prepare a Bushfire Survival Plan with advice from the experts.”

The workshop will also include gardening and sustainability presenters Chris Ferreira, Rohan Carboon and design architect Richard Hammond, who will be discussing different ways to protect properties.
