We want you to contribute your local knowledge to the plan to help reduce bushfire risk across the region.
What is being decided?
The Upper Eyre Peninsula Bushfire Management Area Plan (BMAP) identifies assets at risk from bushfire and the prevention and preparedness strategies to reduce the risk to those assets. It is not an operational fire-fighting plan. The Upper Eyre Peninsula BMAP has been developed by the Upper Eyre Peninsula Bushfire Management Committee (BMC) through engagement with the local councils, CFS volunteers, land managers and other stakeholders.
How can your input influence the decision?
Community input will assist BMC members in deciding on the inclusion of additional assets or changes to treatment strategies. Feedback will contribute to the overall goal of improving bushfire safety on the Upper Eyre Peninsula.
The Upper Eyre Peninsula BMAP comprises of three parts:
- The draft written component (PDF 1.5MB) outlining the planning process, content and other relevant information.
- An interactive spatial web-based map (external website) that identifies assets and their risk levels, and includes pop-up tables of information for each asset.
- A spreadsheet (XLS 80KB) containing a list of all Upper Eyre Peninsula BMAP assets, their risk rating and risk mitigation treatment strategies
You can have your say by:
- commenting in the online discussion
- downloading the submission form and sending your submission via email to CFS.BushfireManagementPlanning@sa.gov.au
- sending your submission via mail to 'Attention of CFS Bushfire Management Planning Unit', Postal PO Box 2468, ADELAIDE SA 5001.
How will your input be used?
The BMC will assess submissions and provide responses. The final draft plan will be provided for consideration to the State Bushfire Coordination Committee.
