The Program

The Joint Fuel Management Program is the state-wide​ program of works to manage fuel on public and private land over the next three years. It is a significant step in implementing the Safer Together program, working towards an integrated and risk focused bushfire management approach. It demonstrates the Country Fire Authority (CFA) and Forest Fire Management Victoria's (FFMVic) commitment to working as one sector, planning and delivering fuel management activities across public and private land. Including a greater sharing of resources, vehicles and other equipment, with CFA local brigade involvement on public land burns, and FFMVic involved beyond public land boundaries.

The Joint Fuel Management Program (JFMP) is updated each year with the latest information, and built on the latest long term Bushfire Management Strategies.

More information on CFA planned burns.

Why we burn

Burns are required for many reasons across both private and public land, including reducing bushfire risk, flora and fauna ecological requirements, regeneration, cultural, land management and agricultural purposes.

FFMVic and CFA staff have developed the JFMP in consultation with local councils, wineries, tourism industry, beekeepers, flora and fauna specialists, as well as knowledge from local communities, including Traditional Owners and key stakeholders and any other parties who registered their interest.

Amendments to the approved plans

On occasion, it is necessary to modify activities including changing burns, rescheduling burns, or removing or adding new burns to the Joint Fuel Management Program.

Amendments since the Joint Fuel Management Program was approved, will not be added to, or removed from the files and maps below.

Maps and plans

Each region has provided a plan below to explain how long term - strategic planning has guided development of the Joint Fuel Management Program. They also show the projected residual risk reduction and ecological outcomes of the program over the coming three years.

For details of fire operations activities in each DELWP or CFA district, including burn areas and locations, use our interactive map or download the documents or pdf map below. All Joint Fuel Management Program maps cover 2020/21-2022/23.

The Joint Fuel Management Program is designed to be flexible, allowing the timing of proposed activities over the three-year period to change in response to weather and other conditions. This means activities such as burns may be carried out in a different year than indicated in the plan. Fuel management activities included in the JFMP are planned burns and mechanical works such as slashing, mowing and clearing works, creating and maintaining fuel breaks.

We welcome your comments all year round and we encourage you to have input into all parts of the strategic and operational planning process. Please contact your local DELWP, Parks Victoria or CFA office.

For information about public safety zones, visit closures of parks and forests.
