Managing fire on WCL

FIre managementThe WCL board and NPWS have prepared a reserve fire management strategy for the park. This map-based document contains risk mitigation and fire suppression information used as the basis for prescribed burn planning. In managing fire on Worimi Conservation Lands WCL DECCW works closely with the Rural Fire Service and NSW Fire & Rescue, and is an active participant of the Lower Hunter Bushfire Management Committee.

Our primary fire management objectives are to:

  • protect life and property – both within parks and on immediately adjacent land
  • protect and conserve natural, cultural, scenic and recreational features
  • cooperate with other organisations in planning and implementing fire management.
