Bushfire emergency management planning

Download and fill out your plan so your business is bushfire ready

There are three Bushfire Emergency Management Planning (EMP) documents:

  • Bushfire EMP Guide (pdf) – an overview of the Bushfire EMP process and requirements.
  • Bushfire EMP Template (doc) – for you to fill out with your own information (feel free to add and delete as you see fit).
  • Sample Bushfire EMP (doc) and also in pdf – an example of a Bushfire EMP for a fictional organisation (My Bus Company) that should help you fill out your own template, and from which you can copy/paste anything that is useful to you.
What is Emergency Management Planning?

Emergency management planning is about preparing, mitigating risk, responding to, and recovering from an emergency. It should be an ongoing element of your approach to business continuity and provide clear direction for management, staff, procurers/customers (such as Department for Education), customers, and other stakeholders in case of an emergency.

If you have any feedback on these documents, or need any help working through them and coming up with your own plan, please do not hesitate to contact Andrea (admin@bussa.asn.au). I’m here to help.

CFS presentation to Bus SA

Bus Fire Mitigation + Child Check-Mate

21 July 2023

United Safety & Survivability Corporation logo

With Mick Hall from United Safety and Survivability Corporation

Mick will be discussing two life-saving technologies and how to implement them in your fleet to make your company a leader in safety mitigation.

Child Check-Mate
Installed on over 350,000 buses around the world – this alarm system has protected the lives of hundreds of children.

It’s a unique technology that tells drivers all children have safely disembarked at the end of a run, using GPS integration, motion detection, voice instruction and plenty of other features.

Bus Fire Mitigation
In 2017, United Safety and LSM Technologies were contracted to fit (and retrofit) all 5,000 buses in the NSW State Transit fleet with engine bay and wheel bay fire suppression systems. Mick will talk about this hugely successful project, explaining the whys, the hows, and the ongoing positive safety impact.

Zoom Meeting link will be sent the day before the webinar.
