Bushfire Management Committees
About Bushfire Management Committees
The role of Bushfire Management Committees is to support the management of bushfire risk in the area of the landscape covered by the Committee, by coordinating implementation of Bushfire Management Area Plans.
Bushfire Management Committees are established for each of the nine Bushfire Management Areas established by proclamation under the Fire and Emergency Services Act 2005 (SA).
Each Committee has representatives from fire, land and emergency management agencies, including State and local government. Representative bodies for primary producers, CFS volunteers and conservation groups also have members on many BMCs.
