The Bushfire Building Community Day, Expo & Forum is a free public event for anyone wanting to learn more about building, renovating and staying safe in bushfire-prone areas.

This year’s Community Day will be held in the upper Blue Mountains, where the worst impact of the 2019/20 bushfires was felt.

At the Community Forum, experts from the NSW RFS and other bushfire & building professionals will share essential knowledge, tips and advice to keep your home and family safe.
At the Expo you’ll find NSW RFS, Blue Mountains City Council and lots of building companies, consultants and suppliers of bushfire safety products ready to answer all your questions.

Please note: in 2020 the Community Day may be affected by COVID-19 restrictions. Watch this space or follow us on Facebook for updates.
