Many people focus heavily on their home during any bushfire planning, but more important is the area surrounding your home. The intensity and spread of fire are influenced by many factors including the weather, topography and vegetation on your property. While you can’t change the weather, you can do something about the vegetation.

What is bushfire fuel?

When we talking about fuel management, we’re talking about vegetation that fuels the spread and intensity of a bushfire. This includes scrub, leaves, grass, undergrowth, twigs, shrubs, bark and any other type of vegetation that will burn easily.

Controlling the fuel load around your property significantly increases the chance of your home surviving a bushfire. With limited fuel, the spread of a fire can be slowed and is therefore easier to get under control.

Not only does reducing the fuel load help to protect your home, but it can also benefit surrounding properties and the local community. Your firefighters will also find it much easier to control a blaze with you follow a comprehensive fuel management plan.

Bushfire Attack Level (BAL) Assessments

A Bushfire Attack Level is a measure of the severity of a building’s potential exposure to ember attack, radiant heat and direct flame contact in a bushfire event

Indigenous Training

SA Bushfire Solutions has a long and proud association working with Indigenous groups and communities throughout Australia to assist and develop Bushfire Mitigation Programs and provide hands-on training.

Bushfire Survival Plans

If you live in a high bushfire risk area, developing a Bushfire Survival Plan is crucial to you, your family’s and your property’s safety and survival.

We engaged Brett to conduct vegetation management and a BAL assessment while we were having planning difficulties with the Council, CFS and other agencies. Brett’s expert advice and vast knowledge is allowing us to progress with our build and obtain a BAL rating that accurately matches the risk our property presents. His BAL assessment report is one of the most detailed and thorough reports I have seen compared to other agencies we have been dealing with. Brett was professional, on time and performed the required work at short notice and to a high standard that we were after.

I would highly recommend to anyone building in a high bushfire area, requiring BAL assessment or vegetation control to contact him first before approaching anyone else.
