Fire Prevention at Forest Operations Procedures updated with bushfire season commencing October 1.
Posted 25 September 2023
The Tasmanian Forest Industry Fire Management Committee (FIFMC) have endorsed changes to the Fire Prevention at Forest Operations procedures and equipment audit form for the upcoming 2023 fire season which commences October 1.
The FIFMC was established in the early 1990’s with an objective to minimise the incidence of wildfire resulting from forest operations and to ensure compliance with relevant regulations. Endorsed by the Tasmanian Fire Service, procedures outline minimum fire equipment requirements and procedures to follow to reduce the risk of fire in both high and low risk hazard forest activity.
A copy of the procedures should be on site at forest operations at all times.
