The ACT Parks & Conservation Service (PCS) manages about 73% or roughly 187,000 ha across the ACT and the Googong Foreshore, NSW. PCS implements an extensive ongoing bushfire fuel management program. Fuel management can reduce fire behaviour and severity, improve firefighter safety, increase the probability of suppression and reduce the impacts of bushfires on natural and built assets. The three means for managing bushfire fuels are reduction, removal and conversion to a less flammable type, and are achieved by undertaking the slashing, grazing, physical removal, and/or prescribed burns. These activities are described in a yearly program of work referred to as the Bushfire Operations Plan (BOP), which sets out activities to meet the requirements of theStrategic Bushfire Management Plan for the ACT (SBMP).The Bushfire Operational Plans map shows the Territory and Municipal Services Directorate (TAMS) Bushfire Operations Plan (BOP) for the current financial year.The TAMS BOP is derived from the 5 year Regional Fire Management Plans, which can also be viewed on this site. The TAMS BOP details the specific timing, type and location of fuel-reduction, access and infrastructure activities proposed to be undertaken in the ACT in the current financial; year, in accordance with Version 3 of the Strategic Bushfire Management Plan (SBMP). Creative Common By Attribution 4.0 (Australian Capital Territory), Please read Data Terms and Conditions statement before use of the data.
