The Rock Nature Reserve fire management strategy

RFMS define management approaches for parcel (s) of protected lands in line with National Parks & Wildlife Service (NPWS) strategic policy. RFMS are also the basis for preparing prescribed burning  operations plans and Incident Action Plans.

The RFMS details desirable fire management regimes and objectives for NPWS-managed land. It assesses bushfire threats within the area, the type and nature of natural and cultural heritage, assets and other facilities within the reserve and includes guidelines for any suppression activities or hazard reduction work to be undertaken within that area.

NPWS is a member of the Riverina Zone Bushfire Management Committee (BFMC) to which this reserve is a part-of.  Under s. 52 of the Rural Fires Act 1997 the BFMC is responsible for the development of a bushfire risk management plan and plans of operations across the area. The plan integrates RFMS  into a wider multi-agency framework.

The NPWS contact details displayed on this fire management strategy may be out of date. For the most up-to-date contact information see National Parks offices around NSW or the National Parks Contact Centre.
