• revise documentation to remove distinctions between planned and unplanned fire
• extend Emergency Coordination Centre operations to include the prescribed burning program
• apply Australasian Interagency Incident Management System-Incident Control System rules to the prescribed burning program as a priority element of improving risk management processes
