Fire is an inescapable and hugely important part of the Australian environment. Not just because of the damage caused by bushfires, but also because fire is a critical factor in the management of virtually all types of land in Australia, even in suburbia.

2

Why are we bothered about all this? Because we have had a series of disastrous bushfires in Western Australia in recent years. Look at this list, which covers the period 2003-2016.

The critical factor in bushfire management is the fuel load, the amount of leaf litter, fallen twigs and shrub growth on an area. If fuel loads are kept within certain limits a bushfire will have minimal impact and will be easily (and safely) controllable.

The problem is the greatly increasing number and severity of serious bushfires in Western Australia. For example, here is the graph showing the extent of bushfires in our Crown forested areas in the South West of the state. You see we have a problem! Clearly, the current Statewide system for keeping bushfires to a minimum is failing, and drastic measure need to be taken to retrieve the situation.
