Bushfire Management Area Plans

Bushfire Management Committees 

There are 9 Bushfire Management Committees across the state. Their key function is to bring together all relevant agencies and organisations with a direct interest in bushfire management and facilitate a coordinated and collaborative approach to bushfire management planning and implementation of mitigation strategies.

Each BMC is responsible for preparing and maintaining a strategic, risk-based Bushfire Management Area Plan (BMAP) for their designated Bushfire Management Area.

Important Update:

The State Bushfire Management Plan 2021-2025 has been approved by the Minister for Police, Emergency Services and Correctional Services, having been endorsed by the Chief Officers of the SACFS and the SAMFS and the SBCC, in accordance with the Fire and Emergency Services Act 2005 (SA).  The Plan has been developed by the State Bushfire Coordination Committee to guide the key priorities for bushfire management in South Australia over the coming four years. The draft Plan was open for public consultation from 22nd March to 5th May 2021. The SBCC will now proceed to develop an implementation plan for the key actions to be overseen by the Committee, and further information on these processes will be provided in due course.
