Bushfire risk management plan

The Shoalhaven district bushfire risk management plan (BFRMP) (PDF 18.37 mb) is a strategic document that identifies community assets at risk from bushfire and sets out a program of coordinated, multi-agency treatments to reduce identified risks.

Treatments may include such things as fuel reduction burning, grazing, community education and fire trail maintenance. Annual programs to implement the treatments are undertaken by property owners, land managers and fire fighting authorities.

The BFRMP has been prepared by the Shoalhaven Bush Fire Management Committee and covers both public and private land.

If you are concerned that vegetation on land near you may be placing your property at risk from bushfires, you can request an inspection by an officer from the NSW Rural Fire Service by lodging a Bushfire Hazard Complaint (opens new window).

If you are not comfortable using computers or do not have access to the internet you can contact the Shoalhaven District office of the NSW Rural Fire Service by phone on 4424 4424.

Council's bushfire mitigation program
