The BAL evaluation depends on a mix of elements identifying with bushfire hazard. These incorporate your Fire Danger Index (FDI), the kind of vegetation, your home's nearness to it and the incline of the site.

The FDI is a measure of the likelihood of a bushfire beginning, how quick it will spread and how troublesome it will be to contain. Victoria has a rearranged strategy where there are two levels: 50 in high zones and 100 somewhere else.

The vegetation on your site will be ordered into one of seven kinds. These are timberland, forest, shrubland, clean, mallee/mulga, rainforest or meadow.

To decide the separation between the vegetation and your home or proposed constructing site, an estimation is taken from the edge of the vegetation to the nearest outside divider or supporting post on account of a parking space or deck.

The incline of the land is essential as it impacts the seriousness of a bushfire. For BAL, it's the slant under the arranged vegetation as opposed to the slant between the building and vegetation that is surveyed.

The discoveries from these territories are then consolidated to decide your BAL rating.
