Bush Fire Risk Management Plans

Everyone has a role to play in planning for bush fires – fire authorities, landowners, land managers, planning authorities, local councils and the community.

Local Bush Fire Management Committees across NSW help identify assets at risk of bush fire in an area, which will include communities, buildings, infrastructure as well as culturally and environmentally significant locations. They then develop strategies to protect those assets.

Each Bush Fire Management Committee develops a Bush Fire Risk Management Plan. It sets out the types of work scheduled to deal with the risk of bush fires in an area. These works may range from a community engagement event to hazard reduction activities.

The community plays a vital role in developing these plans and everyone can have input. Contact your local Fire Control Centre to find out how.
