Property owners should be aware that large embers can travel at least 700m ahead of a bushfire front. Ember attack is responsible for about 85 per cent of houses burning during a bushfire.

Please note: Mapping of ember attack above is not completely indicative of potential extent due to numerous determining factors and all properties in proximity to bushland should make necessary preparedness provisions in the event of a fire.

All residents across Ryde should prepare for severe weather related events such as storms, intense rainfall and heatwaves.
