Fire management area committees are meeting this month to begin work on reviewing community bushfire risks.
State Fire Management Council chairman Ian Sauer said the 10 committees from throughout the state were important in identifying bushfire risks in Tasmania.
The committees are made up of major land managers and community members.
"FMACs take a proactive approach in identifying local bushfire risk issues, rather than a reactive approach that can eventuate in major loss of property and possibly life," Mr Sauer said.
"Furthermore, such plans also are formulated to provide the multi-agency Fuel Reduction Program with local knowledge to value add the programs computer modelling.
"This planning helps make Tasmania safe, by giving firefighters, many of whom are volunteers, the best chance of defending people and property in a major event,” he said.
"There are areas of the state that are as dry as tinder and given the right circumstances can pose significant bushfire risk.
“Through these forums, committees will meet and discuss their present plans and the future of Tasmania’s fire protection planning system.”
