FFEC has extensive experience in developing Fire Implementation Plans (FIPs) for landscape scale properties within Queensland, Northern Territory and Northern Western Australia. Properties where burn planning or FIP contributions have been made by FFEC are listed in our Capability Statement. FIPs that FFEC provide for individual burns carried out are site specific and include the implementation methodology and are accompanied by a comprehensive site specific risk analysis.

FIPs include forms FFEC employs to document and communicate safety, environmental and quality obligations for every project. Our risk analysis is conducted for individual burns and informs our risk control methods for each project. All of our reports include where relevant: maps and interpretation, explanation of the fire strategy used, incendiary device rate of delivery, photographs and recommendations for the following fire season.
