Prescribed Burning: The practitioners’ position

Extracts:

“AFAC and FFMG Members take the position
that fire is an integral part of the landscape in
Australia and prescribed burning has an essential
role for cultural, economic, and ecological
outcomes whilst providing risk reduction to life
and property.”

and

“Bushfires will never be eliminated from the
environment. Prescribed burning can help to
reduce the risk and severity of impacts that these
events have on life, property, community, and the
environment. Prescribed burning can be used
to reinvigorate ecosystems that are at risk from
fire exclusion, or for promoting regeneration in
silvicultural systems.
Reduced fuel hazards assist the success of
suppression activities and reduce the intensity,
extent and impacts of subsequent bushfires.”
