What we do
Integrated Fire Management (IFM) is a series of actions implemented through reduction, readiness, response and recovery planning and management.
Activities in IFM include fire awareness, fire prevention, prescribed burning, resource sharing and coordination, fire detection, fire suppression, fire damage rehabilitation and research at a local, provincial and national level to create a sustainable and well-balanced environment, reduce wildfire damage and promote the beneficial use of fire.
Integrated Fire Management
Our IFM solutions can be adapted to suit the requirements of clients, including large-scale commercial forestry operations, various land users and Fire Protection Associations (FPA).
Fire Reduction, as part of Integrated Fire Management, is a set of activities developed to mitigate and manage the start and spread of fires as well as navigation of legislation during implementation.
Response as part of Integrated Fire Management is a set of coordinated actions to bring the correct resources with accurate information to an unwanted fire without delay.
Mitigate fire risk through planning, training, early detection and resource capacity. We provide proven risk management, training, detection and system and capacity solutions to mitigate fire risk.
The aftermath of a wildfire requires rehabilitation of the burnt area. Immediate dangers include soil erosion and longer-term damage by invasion of exotic and invasive plant species. In commercial areas there can be a need to remove burnt materials and re-plant commercial crops and trees.
