Fire Risk Management
Covey Associates offers a wide range of environmental services, including Bushfire Management.
At Covey Associates we employ the latest bushfire simulation software to provide a range of bushfire analytics. We provide Bushfire Attack Level (BAL) Assessments, fire management plans, wildfire and prescribed burn simulations, ensemble modelling, “what if” scenarios, fuel management and evacuation advice. We can also organise prescribed burns for our clients.
Our team has tertiary level qualifications in bushfire management as well as extensive fire ground experience.
Coveys was one of the first firms to use CSIRO’s SPARK software and we worked closely with the CSIRO to improve functionality.

One of our clients purchased an allotment that was surrounded on all sides by tall open forest and undulating topography. The challenge was to locate two residential dwellings on the site without incurring the significant construction material costs associated with high a BAL.
