Bushfire management plans and strategy


The City of Hobart is finalising a new Bushfire Management Strategy following an extensive community consultation process. The final strategy will be released in early 2022.

The draft strategy can be downloaded from the Your Say Hobart website. It includes an overview of Hobart’s bushfire risks and the methods used to reduce those risks.

The City has also prepared a bushfire action plan for Hobart that explains what causes bushfires, how bushfire risk in Hobart is managed and what residents can do to protect their homes and family from bushfire. 

It includes a history of fire management in Tasmania, and handy checklists to help residents prepare for bushfire.
