    $138.29+GST (Retail), $110.63+GST (Members)
    This Handbook provides information on and discusses the risks associated with living in bushfire–prone areas, or living in proximity to bushfire–prone areas, with the main consideration of reducing the risk from bushfire attack. The Handbook discusses the major elements of bushfire defence measures including fire protection, fire plans, stay or go and defendable spaces. It also provides an explanation of the basis of Australian Standard AS 3959-2009, Construction of buildings in bushfire–prone areas. A list of frequently asked questions on bushfires is included together with discussion on the regulation of buildings located in bushfire–prone areas.
