Case Study: Bushfire Management Plan for EnergyAustralia

EnergyAustralia is required to take practical steps to prevent the occurrence and spread of bush fires on or from the land under its control. Having responsibility for the Mount Piper Power Station and Wallerawang Power Station sites, EnergyAustralia needed to better understand their potential risks and how to manage and mitigate fire at these locations.

EnergyAustralia recognised First Field Environmental’s strong bush fire capabilities and called on us to develop a thorough Bush Fire Risk Management Plan.

The report prepared by First Field Environmental identified and assessed EnergyAustralia assets for potential impact by bush fire, and detailed treatment strategies and implementation to manage bush fire risk including requirements for reporting and recording bush fire.

First Field Environmental assisted EnergyAustralia in meeting its obligations while delivering a practical report that could be used should there ever be a fire at the site.
