BUSHFIRE ATTACK LEVEL CONTOUR MAP
A BAL contour map is a scale map of the subject lot, it is an illustration of the potential radiant heat impact and associated BAL ratings. It uses the vegetation within 100 metres of the property to assess the risk. A contour map is suitable for bushfire risk assessment at the subdivision stage as well as for strategic planning proposals, when the layout of the lot is already determined.
BUSHFIRE ATTACK LEVEL REPORT
A BAL report assesses the lot by measuring the severity of potential exposure to ember attack, radiant heat and direct flame contact to the building in question. The result of this report is a BAL rating classification. See below the possible outcomes.

BUSHFIRE MANAGEMENT STATEMENT (BMS)
A BMS is a comprehensive document that provides you with catered recommendations based on location, siting, vehicular access and water.
BUSHFIRE MANAGEMENT PLAN (BMP)
A Bushfire Management Plan (BMP) is a comprehensive document that sets out short, medium and long term management strategies for bushfire hazards. It provides recommendations and strategies to help reduce your indicative Bushfire Attack Level (BAL) rating as well as providing precautions to safeguard the property in case of a bushfire.
