We update this page each year with free bushfire, smoke and heatwaves resources for safety and wellbeing of our learning communities.

Our bushfire and heatwave actions

Did you know?

  1. Bushfire is rated as Tasmania’s No. 1 natural hazard (PDF, 1.4MB), with large fires in 2013, 2016, and 2019.
  2. Our role is to support bushfire and heatwave safety by sharing information and taking advice from lead agencies.

Our approach

  • We share advice from the lead agencies to keep our people safe from bushfires or heatwaves
  • We do this before, during and after bushfires and heatwaves
  • We will make changes if we need to so people who come to our sites can be safe from bushfires or heatwaves.
