Expertise in the bushfire safety and management fields is concerned with forming contingency plans to deal with active bushfires and with the aftermath of one. The plans created by the experts in this field usually include actions by four stages, which are;

• Mitigation

• Preparation

• Response

• Recovery

While each stage has a distinct role and has its own plan of action, there are various aspects where some of the stages interact with one another.

Mitigation stage can be easily defined as planning to prevent the fires occurring in the first place. It includes the efforts that are taken to ensure that the loss of life and property is limited.

Preparation stage involves planning for changing behaviours and processes to reduce the impact of a possible fire on the human population. It includes multiple types of hazard reduction processes such as controlled burning, mechanical clearing or even reducing the ground fuel by hand.

Response stage involves assembling units of firefighting and emergency services to the location of the fire. It involves the processes undertaken to suppress active fires in order to reduce the destruction and save lives.

Recovery stage includes plans that may be undertaken in the aftermath of a fire. It involves acting to restore the area affected by the fire to its condition prior to the fire.
