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.
