Bushfire Management

Bushfires are a natural part of the Australian landscape and have the potential to cause serious social, economic and environmental damage, if not managed correctly. 

We take bushfire management in our region very seriously. We work closely with the State Government and local fire brigades to manage the fuel loads on Council-managed land and nearby State Forests and National Parks. 

The key purpose of bushfire management is to reduce the risk to nearby residents from out-of-control bushfires.
