Summary: 
On 30 September 2015, the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP) conducted a planned burn at Lancefield-Cobaw Croziers Track in the Macedon Ranges – a standard practice in DELWP’s Bushfire Fuel Management Program. This is IGEM’s second report on DELWP’s implementation of recommendations and additional 10 commitments, in response to the Independent Investigation of the Lancefield-Cobaw Fire. In relation to Victoria’s Bushfire Fuel Management Program, IGEM is also monitoring the Victorian Government’s implementation of recommendations from the review of performance targets through delivery of Safer Together, in addition to managing the investigation and reporting of any future breaches of containment lines by a planned burn.

Summary: 
This report supersedes the previous internal audit report titled “Implementation of Recommendations Arising from Prior Reports into Escaped Planned Burns” dated March 2016 as DELWP management requested a further extension of the fieldwork cut-off date. This extension allowed consideration of further documentation to support the implementation status of actions identified by DELWP as complete arising from relevant past examinations, investigations and audits of planned burns that have breached containment lines since 2003

On 8 October 2015 an independent investigation into the fire was announced. During the investigation a number of important issues were raised that did not fall within the Terms of Reference of the Investigation. The Investigation Team felt these were however worthy of highlighting to the Government. This report identifies these issues but does not attempt to provide recommendations, as they do not fall within the responsibility of the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning.

Summary: 
Research data over a 20-year period indicates that very few burns escape. Over the 20 years an average of 584 fires started each year because of lightning, campfire, human error and other causes. Of those 584 fires only nine fires occurred each year because of escaping planned burns.

Summary: 
The recent tragic bushfires of January and February 2009 have reinforced the need to reduce the impact of severe bushfires on the Victorian community and our biodiversity and ecosystems. This information outlines Landscape Mosaic Burning ? a new planned burning approach for Victoria that will help achieve these objectives. The program will be based on science and a risk management framework.

Summary: 
A number of factors, or conditions, affect the way the fire behaves, the amount of fuel likely to be reduced and the impact on nearby communities and the local environment. Because some conditions can change quickly, the final decision to go ahead is made on the morning of the proposed burn.

Summary: 
Because of the mild conditions, DSE and Parks Victoria fire crews were able to start planned burning in February. This is the earliest launch of an autumn burn program in five years. Whenever conditions are suitable, DSE will take every opportunity to carry out planned burns in each DSE Fire District where they are most needed. Burn areas and locations for 2010 have been decided with community and scientific input.

Summary: 
Before a planned burn can go ahead, DSE compiles detailed information about the burn. This is called a burn plan. It includes the reason for the burn, the fire history of the area and any historically important sites or habitat to be protected from the fire. The plan also covers notification, the likely impact of smoke on traffic and nearby communities, maps of the burn area and operational information.

Summary: 
The report compares and contrasts, over the past three decades, the prevention, suppression and planned use of fire on the one third of Victoria that is public land. It identifies on-going failure in government policy, organisation and strategic direction to cope with Victoria's major natural hazard - bushfire.The State benefitted from previous reforms enacted as a result of Judge Leonard Stretton's inquiry into the 1939 Black Friday bushfires and from emergency management reform (1986) following the 1983 Ash Wednesday bushfires. Five years on Victorian's are yet to benefit from many of the key recommendations of the 2009 Bushfires Royal Commission.Lessons now unheeded and problems that remain unaddressed or worse, resisted, are identified.Of particular concern is the lack of fuel reduction burning to mitigate risk, increase community and the natural environment's resilience to destructive high intensity bushfire and assist aggressive first attack to quickly bring bushfires under control.Appropriateness of a new large command and control statutory body, Emergency Management Victoria, now governing crisis and emergency management, including bushfire on public land, is evaluated in the context of the also newly established State Crisis and Resilience Council's three standing sub-committees: risk and resilience; capability and response; and relief and recovery.Recommendations are made, it is argued, which will underpin the restoration of Victoria's once enviable national and international standing in the field of forest fire management on public land.

Summary: 
Fire is a natural part of many of Victoria?s ecosystems and important for maintaining biodiversity over time. Ecological burning can be used to manage a particular plant species, vegetation communities and/or native animal habitat. Under Native Vegetation Management Agreements, fire will only be considered as a management tool in Ecological Vegetation Classes (EVCs) where regeneration is dependant on episodic fire events.

Summary: 
The Department of Environment and Primary Industries and Parks Victoria carry out fire prevention activities on Victoria’s public land to help reduce the impacts of bushfires to communities and the environment. Our Fire Operations Plans outline where these fire prevention activities are intended to be carried out over a three year period, if weather and other conditions permit. These activities include planned burning, slashing, mowing and clearing works, track works and construction of fire breaks.
