You don’t need to be very close to a natural scrub or forest to feel the effects of a bushfire. The wind can spread embers from the fire in many different directions, causing smaller fires to appear elsewhere. They also spread a lot faster in hot weather and dry conditions. Our bushfire consultants at BEMC are trained professionals that assess the risk of bushfire-related damage to your land and property.

Some additional risks that our bushfire consultants aim to mitigate are the effects of radiant heat and smoke. The heat from a large wildfire can be just as damaging as the flames as it can melt through many different building materials. The smoke from a bushfire can be life-threatening and having an emergency evacuation plan in place is crucial.

We offer a range of bushfire services to reduce the risk of fire damage to your property and assets. Some of our typical clients include mum and dad developments, land developers, rural land owners or managers, local, federal and state agencies, and community or Aboriginal groups.

A Bushfire Attack Level (BAL) certificate is an important document that confirms your property does not fall into the flame zone and that adequate protection measures are in place for water, gas and electrical systems.

This certificate is often required for building compliance and provides a standardised measure of the risk posed by potential bushfire attacks on your property. Obtaining a BAL certificate is an important step in the building and planning process, serving as an official endorsement of your property’s preparedness for bushfire conditions.

Bushfire emergency plans are documents outlining the procedures to follow in the event of a bushfire. These plans are designed to minimise risk to both occupants and assets. They include details such as evacuation routes, emergency contact numbers and the location of safety equipment. Having a well-formulated bushfire emergency plan could be the difference between life and death in a bushfire event.

If you’re considering purchasing vacant land, a bushfire constraint assessment can provide you with an understanding of significant bushfire risk elements. This assessment is particularly useful for potential land buyers and developers, offering insights into the feasibility and safety considerations of a prospective land purchase.

At Bushfire and Environmental Management Consultancy, our controlled burning contractors are experts in orchestrating planned burns to elevate the safety standards against bushfires on your premises.

Utilising a four-stage program, our team plans and executes controlled burns, ensuring that best practices are adhered to at each phase—before the burn, while it’s happening and in the aftermath. This methodical approach serves as a preventive strategy to diminish the amount of combustible material on your property, thereby lessening the likelihood of an intense bushfire occurrence.
