Managing the risks of bush fire
The department has conducted assessments of all NSW Government schools and TAFE colleges and campuses in bush fire prone areas to determine the level of risk for bush fire.
Department facilities located in bush fire prone areas plan and prepare for the bush fire season. Our facilities monitor local conditions during the bush fire season, particularly when there is bush fire activity in the local area.
Facilities in bush fire prone areas at an increased risk
Department facilities that have been assessed at an increased risk are identified on a bush fire register. These facilities will have alternate arrangements in place if a catastrophic fire danger rating is issued for their location. Information on alternate arrangements in the event of bush fire is available for parents and carers from your school, college or campus.
