What's this about?

The Hornsby Ku-ring-gai Bush Fire Risk Management Plan (BFRMP) has recently been reviewed and the Hornsby Ku-ring-gai Bush Fire Management Committee (BFMC) invites you to view the draft BFRMP and make comments by Friday 30 June 2023.

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 sets out treatment strategies to minimise and mitigate the risk to the community.

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.

A BFRMP is an important document which aims to protect the community and assets. The Hornsby Ku-ring-gai BFMC encourages everyone to take the opportunity to review the draft BFRMP and ensure any concerns are addressed.
