Bushfire Planning

Fire is a natural phenomenon in the Australian landscape, and critical for the maintenance of biodiversity and ecological processes. The correct management of fire can lead to both a safe bush and good ecological outcomes. Ecosure can assist with bushfire management planning and assessments of bushfire risk that can be used to support planning processes.

Ecosure senior scientists have significant experience in providing bushfire ecology advice to local government planning processes and vegetation restoration projects.

Getting bushfire management right is critical for public safety, asset protection and the environment. Fire can also be a critical part of ecological restoration when used with other methods of vegetation management.

Ecosure can provide technical advice on:

  • bushfire attack level (BAL) assessments under Australian Standard AS 3959-2009
  • fuel load estimates
  • bushfire management plans
  • responses to bushfire performance criteria within development planning processes.
