Doctors treating bushfire burns victims around the country say it has left them with the sense that the disaster could become yet another case of bushfire management that doesn’t work and leaves residents with the impression it can’t be dealt with.
The government, through the Fire Services Agency (FSA), issued a bushfire management plan last Friday.
“At the moment we’re just trying to understand what the scale is of that fire and what its impacts are, whether people are at risk,” said Chief Inspector Chris Kavanagh from the Rural Fire Service’s New Britain, which is heading up the bushfire response plan.
“But it does appear to be a significant disaster.”

Most fir일산출장안마es are모나코 카지노 extinguished in just a few hours to days as a result of quick response from fire crews, while a significant proportion of the fires continue to burn in remote areas with minimal resources and infrastructure, said Mr Kavanagh.
Fire crews from three bushfire management authorities — the FFA, the Ministry of Primary Industries (MPI) and the State Emergency Management Agency (SECA) — have been dispatched to the country’s rural regions this year to work alongside emergency services to quell the bushfires.
The fire service has a presence on land and water that has grown exponentially over the past decade, with more than half the population living in a fire risk zone, Mr Kavanagh said.
