Australia is currently facing the worst bush fires we have ever seen. People have lost their possessions,  their homes, and even their lives due to these devastating infernos. 

A huge contributing factors for these fires being so catastrophic is due to the funding cuts for fire services and the idea that back burning is not necessary and "too risky" due to the fuel they use to burn off the build up of trees and other things that, if not removed, adds more fuel to a bush fire.

Back burning is a strategy that involves burning strategic locations around the path of an approaching fire. These 'counter fires' are usually started at night or in more favourable weather conditions to reduce the chance that these fires might become dangerous and spread unchecked.

Without back burning, we face situations like the one Australia is facing at this very moment. 

Without back burning, our hot summers become deadly. 

Our country folk have been begging their local councils and fire services to back burn for months, but their hands are tied due to our elected officials not looking at the bigger picture. These officials don't live out in these affected areas. They aren't losing their homes, their families. They don't want to accept that they could have done something to prevent this devastation. 

Please sign this petition so we can show our government that we will not stand idly by and watch our country go up in flames without a fight.
