Support for schools

Support for schools to manage and mitigate their bushfire risk


Throughout this process the bushfire assessor works closely with school principals and other management (e.g. Department of Education).

The findings and recommendations of the bushfire assessment report are discussed and explained, and ongoing technical advice and support is provided regarding bushfire risk mitigation measures and emergency management planning.

Tailored bushfire risk mitigation strategies are designed for the site and detailed in the Bushfire Assessment Report.

Schools are then supported with implementing these mitigation strategies to improve the school’s bushfire safety.

Following the implementation of key mitigation works; a site will be re-assessed, resulting in an upgraded Bushfire-Ready Schools category.
