Bushfire risk and recovery
The department works in partnership with the community, other land managers and fire agencies to tackle the risk of bushfire and ensure the primary objectives of the Code of Practice for fire management on public lands in South Australia are met.
The department is actively reducing the risk of bushfire on public land to safeguard the things people care about in the areas where they live. This involves land management activities such as planning, slashing, mowing, clearing, planned burning and land recovery.
