NSW Rural Fire Services

The NSW RFS has developed a Guideline for Bush Fire Protection for Existing Development that sets out a process for the assessment and treatment of bush fire hazards at a property level. To support the application of the guideline, RFS has engaged Spatial Vision to develop an online tool which enables RFS staff and other agencies to help assess bush fire risk and determine the required treatments for a given property.

The tool will provide a map-based web interface for use on desktop and tablet computers.


It will make use of a set of custom-developed geo-processing and mathematical calculator services which implement the required bush fire science. Spatial Vision will develop the tool for deployment in the RFS’ cloud environment.
