Bushfire Connect is powered with the diligence of fire-spotting by formal management organisations and the general public. Live incidents can be reported through standard electronic alert, email, and forms sent to the site managers.
Each season, fire report compilations, along with interactive maps track the progress and control of all wilderness fires that are reported. These reports are formalised and provide valuable information for upcoming fire seasons and vulnerable regions. They greater the volume of reported fires, the more likely quick fire team responses and mitigation can be completed.
The reports compiled also help officials pinpoint areas that require future fuels reduction, and the possible deployment of early fire warning systems.
