CFA Planned Burn Locations

Planned burns refer to the controlled use of fire under carefully managed conditions to reduce fuel such as dead wood, leaf litter, bark and shrubs. Planned burning is conducted by CFA brigades on behalf of, and at the request of, private land owners or managers of other reserves such as roads rail corridors, council reserves and water authority land. Data include the aggregated locations of planned burns attended by CFA (defined as fully planned burns on private land that have been proposed, initiated, completed and the treatment signed off). These data only include burns where written plans are in place, therefore smaller burns (less than 0.1Ha) are unlikely to be reflected in the data.
