Backburn

Backburn

Southern Highlands, NSW, Australia

One of the most important techniques in bushfire fighting is to backburn. This process creates a buffer between the fire and the asset or area that needs to be protected.

Here, the Exeter crew are supervising a backburn that was lit to protect a chicken farm near Yerrinbool in the Southern Highlands.
