On days that bushfire rating is predicted to be extreme, or catastrophic for your area, leaving early is the best option for your family's survival.
If these questions make you doubt your ability, the preparedness of your property, or if you are for any reason unsure about staying and defending your property, then you should prepare a plan to leave early.

For firefighting you should have a pump with a pressure of 100PSI or above. To find out the PSI for your pump look at the max head and multiply it by 1.42. For example a pump that has a max head of 74.5m has a pressure of 106PSI.
All the Water Master Petrol firefighting pumps have PSI's ranging between 102PSI and 106PSI.
Maximum head refers to the maximum height that the pump can pump water to. The flow rate is highly dependent upon this, for example if you have a pump with a maximum head of 74.5m your flow rate will be zero at 74.5m. It is important to consider the height difference between your water source and where you need your water pumped to, for example if you need to pump your water up a hill to fight a fire near your house. As a general rule, the maximum head capacity of the pump will tell you what the pump can do in terms of suction height + uplift + distance. Look at the below chart to see what pumps would best suit your flow and pressure requirements for a firefighting pump.
Firefighting pumps have suction/discharge sizes typically ranging from 1" to 3". They suck in the water through the suction valve (from your water source), and disperse it through the discharge valve. High Pressure Fire Fighting Pumps generally have a higher PSI but move lower water flow rate volumes on a litres per minute measure when compared to water transfer pumps.

This year with the increased vegetation growth over winter and spring will dry out over the summer. This will cause increased fuel levels creating greater fire danger and potentially extending the season later than normal. You may need to maintain your property more often than in previous years, with the potential of a longer season and higher growth levels it is important that your property remains safe through the whole season.
