The following hazard reduction burns are planned by NSW land managers (such as National Parks and Wildlife Service, Forests NSW, Crowns Lands and Local Government Authorities) and fire agencies (NSWRural Fire Service and Fire and Rescue NSW) over coming days, weather permitting.

These hazard reduction burns are part of a planned bushfire fuel reduction designed to protect life and property from intense wildfires. Hazard reduction will not completely stop bushfires from starting and spreading, but can assist firefighters with containment strategies and property protection.
All landholders, including private property, must treat bushfire hazards on their own land and prepare their own properties adequately and effectively to cope with bushfire.
