With the worst fire season in history unfolding, farmers and homeowners, not just in Northern NSW but also the Hills and Hawkesbury area are suddenly realising that preparation is vital.

Hills Irrigation has been appointed a “Gold Distributor” for Aussie Pump products in the Hills District. Located on Gladstone Road, Castle Hill, the team at Hills Irrigation offer the full range of Aussie fire fighting pumps.

Hills Irrigation is primed with Aussie’s popular Fire Chief. The Aussie Fire Chief was developed for Australian bushfire fighting conditions and is lauded internationally as the world’s best lightweight fire pump. The Fire Chief has a genuine Honda engine and like all Aussie pumps is covered with a unique five year warranty.

“Even Sydney is subject to a catastrophic fire warning this week, fire fighting authorities are warning that resources are stretched,” said Vince Barbatano, Owner of Hills Irrigation. “This summer is going to be long, hot and dangerous and the Hills District is a high risk area. We’re urging customers to revolt against third world products and choose an Aussie Fire Chief to be prepared,” he said.

Hills Irrigation can also supply free copies of the Aussie Bushfire Survival Guide. This guide outlines the essentials of bushfire protection, equipment checklists, fire drills and pump maintenance. This year’s guide has been expanded to include information to minimise the risk to livestock.
