What is a Firebreak? A fire break is generally 3 meter wide bare earth path around the outer edges of a property but it may have go to 6 meters wide if it is adjacent to a highly populated area.
Fire breaks are required by law above a specified land area and the shires or councils inspect them regularly for compliance. For some organisations we also cover fire breaks with limestone or Ferrocrete to make them trafficable and keep down the weeds, a popular service we provide to utility companies.
We typically install firebreaks with skid steers or tractors with attachments on them such as disc ploughs, rake buckets or mulchers. Each council has a slightly different requirement for how firebreaks are installed and maintained, we make sure to check each council’s regulations before quoting on the job.
