Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2018 Week 10 Hansard (Thursday, 20 September 2018) . . Page.. 3998 ..


prescribed burns listed below were unable to be delivered due to prevailing climatic conditions which were at various times, too wet or too dry. Each of these burns have been incorporated in the EPSDD 2018-19 Bushfire Operational Plan (BOP).

It is important to note that the 2017-18 EPSDD BOP includes over 700 individual activities all aimed at contributing to the land manager’s ability to manage bushfire in the landscape. Completing 96.9% of all scheduled activities means the ACT is well prepared to face the 2018-19 fire season.
