Hazard Reduction Burns

Hazard Reduction burns proposed to be undertaken within the next 14 days can be identified using the RFS Hazard Reductions Online Map (External Link).


This is a Statewide map. 


Simply use the search / zoom tools to identify your location in the Wingecarribee Shire. Proposed burn areas and the timing displayed on the map is dynamic and will change frequently in response to changes to the scheduling of the burn by the Agency delivering the burn eg. NSW Rural Fire Service and Fire and Rescue NSW.


Neighbours within 50 metres of this burn will be notified by letter box drop prior to the burn occurring.

 

Hazard reduction burns are used to reduce undergrowth and ground fuels in strategic areas of bush land. This work can assist in reducing the intensity of bush fires should they occur in these areas and improve the ability to manage the impact of potential wildfires across the Shire. Planning and delivery of hazard reduction burns is facilitated through the Wollondilly-Wingecarribee Bushfire Management Committee in accordance with the Wollondilly / Wingecarribee Bush Fire Risk Management Plan.
