The Bushfire Ready Neighbourhood program focuses on building a 'shared responsibility' approach to bushfire preparedness through recognising that individuals, communities and the Tasmania Fire Service all play a part.

The program's aim is to build resilience and capacity in bushfire prevention and preparedness in Tasmanian communities most at-risk to bushfire through a sustainable community development approach.

Bushfire-Ready Neighbourhoods is an award winning research and evidence based program and has been a collaborative approach between the University of Tasmania and the Tasmania Fire Service.
