Outback Bushfire Management Committee: interim bushfire management area plan.

Adelaide: Government of South Australia

The State of South Australia (SA) is divided into nine bushfire management areas. Each of these areas has a corresponding bushfire management plan, which is a strategic document that identifies community assets at risk from bushfire and sets out a program of treatments to reduce the risk to these assets.

The 'Outback' bushfire management area incorporates a number of Indigenous communities and homelands, including the Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara (APY) Lands. The management plan for this area includes information about:

  • topography, land use, climate and population
  • fire bans and fire danger season
  • history of bushfire in the area
  • likelihood of bushfire
  • consequence of bushfire
  • assets and risk treatments.

Bushfire risk analysis maps for Queensland's shire council areas.

Retrieved 20 September 2013 from http://www.ruralfire.qld.gov.au/Bushfire%20Planning/

The Rural Fire Service Queensland has produced a set of bushfire risk analysis maps for each Local Government Area (LGA) in Queensland, including Aboriginal Shire Councils. Each map shows:

  • the LGA boundary lines
  • areas defined as 'forest/park'
  • areas defined as having low/medium/high levels of bushfire risk.

The modelling for the maps was undertaken by the Rural Fire Service Queensland in 2008. Each of the maps is freely available for download as a PDF. The maps are intended as guides for planning purposes only.
