Abstract

The New South Wales Fire Brigades (NSWFB) is a premium emergency management
organisation. The purpose of the NSWFB is to enhance community safety, quality of
life and confidence by minimising the impact of hazards and emergency incidents on
the people, environment and economy of NSW.
To do this, the organisation must ensure resources are positioned in appropriate
locations to access incidents and correct equipment is allocated to each location to best
protect the community. This study aims to produce a model to determine this
distribution of resources based upon variables of fire risk that can be used for any fire
region in NSW.
