Bushfire Risk for Remote Communities in the Northern Territory

This spatial point dataset provides information describing bushfire risk to remote communities in the Northern Territory. The bushfire risk rating for each community is described as either High, Moderate or Low and is current as at 30/06/2020.

The primary purpose of the investigation was to map, describe and evaluate bushfire risk to inform Bushfires NT and Northern Territory Fire and Rescue Service on the bushfire emergency preparedness of remote communities and evaluate the associated bushfire risk.

The data was compiled using desktop assessment tools and on-site validation processes will continue to inform the risk assessment scores. Service providers are encouraged to contact Bushfires NT to assist with the validation process. Bushfires NT email: Bushfires.NT@nt.gov.au
