In December 2015 the Victorian Government requested Inspector-General for Emergency Management (IGEM) to manage the prompt investigation and reporting of any breaches of control lines by a planned burn.

This report provides a summary of IGEM’s observations of investigations into breaches of control lines by planned burns conducted by the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning during the period 1 January 2016 to 30 June 2016, and focuses on the observations and opportunities for continuous improvement.

The Summary of investigations into breaches of planned burn control lines (1 January to 30 June 2016) was published on 15 December 2016.
