The State Bushfire Coordination Committee have prepared the draft State Bushfire Management Plan 2021-2025 (the Plan) in response to the Independent Review into South Australia’s 2019-20 Bushfire Season. The Plan:
- helps to create the foundations for government, non-government organisations and the community to work together to manage bushfire risk in South Australia.
- aims to provide guidance to the State Bushfire Coordination Committee (SBCC), Bushfire Management Committee, and other relevant agencies and organisations, regarding bushfire management within South Australia.
- helps guide the implementation of the reforms identified in the Independent Review into South Australia’s 2019-20 Bushfire Season.
- aims to improve existing processes to better support those organisations responsible for bushfire management.
The summary of the Plan outlines an overview of the scope, responsibilities, objectives, actions and expected outcomes of the Plan are online for you to review ready for comment.
The State Bushfire Coordination Committee say,
“All South Australians can have a part to play in managing their risk from bushfire. ”
They would like to know how the SBCC can better support businesses and the overall community in managing the bushfire season during the next four years.
