Fire Management

Fuel Load Assessments have recently been undertaken in a number of locations in the City of Canning including Bannister Creek, Ranford Road Bushland, Clifton Road Buffer, Queens Park Regional Open Space and Yagan Reserve. The findings from these assessments will help inform fire management plans to address bushfire risk. The updated fire management plans will take a number of factors into consideration, including dry material recorded in the fuel load assessments, proximity to waterways and residences, natural habitats, environmental weeds and topography.

The Natural Areas Team assist with fire management by maintaining firebreaks, pruning, and controlling environmental weeds prior to fire season each year.
