South West Slopes BFRM

What’s this about?

A BFRMP is a document that maps and describes the level of bush fire risk across an area.  It also sets out treatment strategies to reduce the risk of bush fires and better protect the community over 5 years.

The SWS BFMC, consisting of fire agencies, land managers and other stakeholders, have been working to identify ways of reducing the impact of fires on this area – protecting lives, homes, businesses, agriculture, the environment and other assets that are important to the Cootamundra-Gundagai and Hilltops Local Government Areas.

Your input is important – and by planning together, we will help shape the bush fire risk management plan for this area for the next 5 years.

Your comments are invited on the SWS Draft BFRMP. You can view the plan online, at your local council or Fire Control Centre.
