NSW Premier Barry O'Farrell has been confronted by an angry Central Coast resident claiming she almost died in a bushfire because of insufficient backburning.
Mr O'Farrell was visiting bushfire affected locals after being briefed at the RFS command centre in Wyong when Sandra Kay approached him.
"Excuse me Mr O'Farrell, I almost died on Thursday night, the reason being National Parks and Wildlife does not do perimeter burning on their property," the middle-aged Crangan Bay resident said.
"My house has been threatened twice in the last ten years from the south mainly because National Parks and Wildlife is not doing their job."Mr O'Farrell replied that a "huge amount" of backburning had been carried out in the area but said he would take her concerns to the local council and to parliament.
