A Bushfire Attack Level (BAL) assessment assesses the survivability of your property in the case of a bushfire. Using classification of the vegetation surrounding your property and contributing factors such as the slope of the terrain, our assessors give you a rating of heat per square meter in the case that a bushfire was to affect your property. This allows your builders and architects to build or extend on your property with all the necessary provisions (in line with Australian standards AS3959) to try to keep your home standing in the event of a bushfire.
A Bushfire Survival Plan entails the actions yourself and your family will take if there is a bushfire threatening your home. From protecting your house to being ready to leave. Being prepared is key in surviving a bushfire. A Bushfire Response Plan (or Bushfire Emergency Plan) is a set of instructions that details what a site, their employees, occupants, and guests should do in Preparation, Response and Following a bushfire. Many of these plans are becoming necessary due to changes to the Planning, Development & Infrastructure (PDI) Act which require many more businesses to have one following the 2019/20 bushfire season.
Changes to the PDI Act have made it a requirement for any business trading as a tourist operation to have, along with their certificate of occupancy, a way of managing the people and staff in any event of bushfire. Thus, leading to the requirement to have a Response Plan.
