What are Bush Fire Management Committees?
Each Bush Fire Management Committee is made up of a range of stakeholders in order to ensure the whole community has a say on bush fire management activities. They include landholders, land managers, fire authorities and community organisations.
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. Each plan is approved by the Bush Fire Coordinating Committee.
