Our team of experienced fire practitioners and burn management planners is highly capable in assessing fuels and determining overall fuel hazards.We employ widely used methodology and a structured approach to assessing fuel types, arrangement, and predicting the likely timing of fuel removal. We can tailor our assessments to effectively identify priority areas and use a combination of resources to guide optimal location for sampling/recording. We specialise in assessing remote areas to determine an effective approach to achieving ecological outcomes and we sample using both vehicle and helicopter to ensure sites that are representative of the entire area are considered in overall risk ratings.
