Infrastructure protection, Firebreak Maintenance, Perimeter and Boundary burns
Our approach to asset protection is to maximise the productivity of the burn while reducing impacts on the environment. We aim to achieve the outcomes of infrastructure protection by relying on natural firebreaks rather than constructing firebreaks. In instances where safety will be compromised without a constructed firebreak, FFEC can conduct preparatory works including planning and implementing the construction of firebreaks for prescribed burning operations. We also construct impromptu firebreaks to contain wildfire. Our crews are trained in operating machinery to minimise erosion with firebreak construction and rehabilitating sites when necessary.
