The purpose of this report was to undertake a strategic bushfire risk analysis for Tasmania, where the methodology moves from a post-event analysis to a landscape risk assessment, using scenario-based modelling tools. Through this analysis, recommendations were developed for a strategic fuel management program. The analysis in this report takes a tenure-blind approach, and has been undertaken at a landscape level to test strategies designed primarily to reduce the risk of bushfire impacting on Human Settlement Areas. Included in the report is:
Analysis of particular issues associated with fuel mitigation activities.
Bushfire risk assessment at the Statewide scale, including identification of communities considered to be at highest risk.
Analysis of fuel reduction burning as the primary risk treatment option.
