A Bush Fire Risk Management Plan (BFRMP) is a comprehensive document that maps and describes the level of bush fire risk across an area and the proposed treatments to minimise and mitigate the risk.
A BFRMP identifies bush fire issues, identifies assets at risk, assesses the level of risk, and establishes treatment strategies to minimise the risk and who is responsible for carrying out the treatments identified. These treatment strategies may directly affect you and your property.
The Hornsby Ku-ring-gai BFRMP, has recently been reviewed. Hornsby Ku-ring-gai Bush Fire Management Committee (BFMC) invites you to view the draft BFRMP and make comments by 30 June 2023.
