State-Wide BAL (Bushfire Attack Level) Assessments – Western Australia

State Wide BAL Assessments

Bushfire Prone Planning is a bushfire risk management company that prides itself on the ability to offer State-Wide BAL (Bushfire Attack Level) Assessments and Bushfire related services.

Our Senior Bushfire Consultant Alex Aitken was in the City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder in the Eastern Goldfields last week (March 2016) completing a Bushfire Risk assessment for a new subdivision.  The trip entailed liaison with the client, a site assessment of the classified vegetation and determining compliance against the 4 Elements of the Performance Criteria from the Guidelines for Planning in bushfire prone areas.

Only two weeks ago Alex was in the Shire of Dandaragan completing Bushfire Attack level assessments in Jurien Bay and three weeks prior to that in the Shire of Exmouth assessing a property in Coral Bay. Alex is based full time in Perth but “enjoys the opportunity to interact with a wide range of people and the ability to see different parts of the state as a part of his job” Alex said.

With the upcoming application of the DFES bushfire prone area map (April 8th 2016) Bushfire Prone Planning can assist in all parts of the state with respect to BAL (Bushfire Attack Level) assessments and BMP’s (Bushfire Management Plans) for large and small developments.
