Bushfires and grass fires are a serious threat to a farmer's livelihood. Years of hard work can be wiped out in a moment.
While it is impossible to eliminate the risk of fire, farmers can introduce measures to reduce the threat.
A bushfire action plan should be an integral part of your overall business management, and include regular fuel reduction and an adherence to good farm practices.
Further information on farm protection can be found on other fact sheets available from your local council or regional CFS office.
