BMAP open for public consultation
The CFS are in the process of developing regional Bushfire Management Area Plans (BMAP) for Adelaide Mount Lofty Ranges and Limestone Coast. The plans focus on identifying life and property assets at risk from bushfire. The assets are assessed against the impact of bushfires and mitigating treatments are allocated.
Assets have then been assessed for bushfire risk against factors such as:
- Potential sources of ignition
- The ability of fire to establish, spread and its intensity
- The threat to assets from radiant heat
- Susceptibility of the occupants or the structure and potential consequences.
The AMLR and Limestone Coast BMAP is now available for public consultation until 14 June 2016. And the Limestone Coast BMAP is available for public consultation until 3 June 2016.
