Bush Fire Management Plan

Planning for bushfires means ensuring the resources, information and communication methods used in fighting fires are established, reliable and current. It also means establishing emergency management procedures for managing, bushfires, evacuations, road closures and the dissemination of information to the public and key stakeholders.

Planning is not only essential to provide an effective response to a local bushfire emergency; they also underpin the State level plan WESTPLAN Bushfire (available on the DFES website) for dealing with a bushfire emergency.

The SoA plays a major role in ensuring that all emergency management activities pertaining to the Prevention, Preparedness, Response & Recovery (PPRR) from bushfires is undertaken. This plan has been developed to ensure that the threat and impact from bushfires is managed to provide protection of life, property and the environment within the SoA.
