Burning Approval Process Fact Sheet - Update

One of the Hotspots Fire Project’s core texts, the “Managing Fire on Your Property” booklets for landholders, has received an update in three regions (Southern Rivers, Northern Rivers and Hawkesbury Nepean), with updates for other regions on the way.

The “Managing Fire on Your Property" landholder booklets provide regionally specific information on fire history, vegetation types, climate change predictions, while also providing detailed instructions on preparing your own property fire management plan and other fire management information.

Based on best available science and operational knowledge, the Hotspots Fire Project delivers resources to landholders and land managers to provide them with the skills and knowledge they need to participate in fire management planning. Hotspots operates on a core belief that well-informed and well-prepared communities complement the roles of land managers and fire agencies and that a shared approach to fire management is critical to any form of planning.

These booklets have now been updated with the latest scientific and operational knowledge including the changes to the Australian Fire Danger Ratings, the inclusion of Ignition Management Zones, changes to climate change predictions for each region and much more.
