Bushfire events are synonymous with the Australian summer. The wildland urban interface has seen an increase in fire activity and a higher risk to the loss of assets. Building design, town planning and human activity influence the risk of loss of assets. Planning provisions, building and construction codes relating to the risk of bushfire attack are delivered to meet bushfire risks.
Bushfire risk is the likelihood and consequence of a fire starting, spreading and impacting people, property and the environment.
