About us

SA Bushfire Solutions is an independent bushfire risk management company based in South Australia.

We work closely with a range of different stakeholders, including schools, councils, federal, state and local government agencies, environmental groups, private residents and land-owners, multi-national companies and even the military to develop tailored bushfire survival, prevention and management plans.

Training Services

We’re passionate about helping local communities in the fight against bushfires.

We’ve seen the devastation caused by fire, and one of our goals is to empower people in the community, businesses and all other stakeholders to be active in protecting our land, homes and residents from the dangers. We’ve partnered with a Registered Training Organisation, Fireground Leadership and Training, to provide a range of nationally accredited units in the area of emergency management.

Comprehensive Bushfire Management Services

We offer a complete range of services to help all of our stakeholders manage the risk of bushfire.

From private residents to federal government agencies, everybody can benefit from our services, which include:

  • Bushfire Attack Level (BAL) Assessments
  • Property Bushfire Risk Assessments
  • Fuel Management Plans
  • Bushfire Survival Plans

From planning to survival in a bushfire emergency, everybody has a role to play. We cover all aspects of bushfire management, and all of our services are tailored to your individual needs.

Planning for bushfire safety

Bushfires have the potential to decimate homes, take lives and destroy communities.

We’ve seen it throughout the country, and we’re passionate about making a difference. It’s everybody’s responsibility to be bushfire safe, and we hope through our work, we can give people the knowledge and tools they need to protect themselves and keep our communities safe.

While we offer plenty of resources to private landowners, we’re committed to spreading the message far and wide. That means reaching as many people as possible through community groups, businesses, tourism operators, councils and government bodies to ensure we minimise the risk of bushfires.
