Bush fire prevention by the Brigade takes the form of both Hazard reductions and Community Information Events.

As part of Hazard Reductions the Brigade carries out Prescribed Burning of prepared sections of land deemed to be hazardous, or where previous fires have passed through. As well as assisting residents who have a hazard reduction certificate with their Hazard reductions. We also cut fire trails and perform non-burning hazard reductions

Community Information Events assist with bush fire prevention as it heightens community awareness of the danger of fire and how to prevent it and be protected against it.
