Bushfire-Ready Schools is a Tasmania Fire Service bushfire safety initiative.

Its objective is to promote community resilience to bushfire, through supporting education centres in bushfire-prone areas to manage their bushfire risk.

This is important to the Tasmania Fire Service because:

  • School children are a vulnerable section of our community;
  • Schools are a key community asset, often central to a community; and
  • Schools have a duty of care to provide a safe workplace for staff and students.
