On the 6th July 2018 Director/Trainer Brett Stephens from SA Bush Fire Solution conducted fire Management and aerial incendiary training to the Bulgul Rangers and the Wodikapildiyerr Rangers on the Bulgul Land Trust in the Northern Territory.

The training provided was to 9 Indigenous Rangers and was a mixture of men and women. As the Ranger Coordinator for the Bulgul Rangers I found Brett's knowledge and expertise in fire management and aerial incendiary to be excellent and the training provided to be very informative, inclusive and hands-on and relevant to the line of work we as a ranger group do during our fires season.

Brett's style of teaching was very easy to understand and showed his passion in what he does. He took his time with students that have English as second language, Brett showed patience and respectfulness for indigenous culture where it was needed.

If the opportunity were to arise again to use SA Bush Fire Solution Training I would not hesitate and would gladly recommend him to provide training for any business or company in Fire Management and aerial incendiary Training.

Claridge Construction engaged Brett Stephens to undertake a BAL Re-assessment on a very difficult site in the Adelaide Hills. The net outcome was the Private Certifier signing off on a reduction in BAL Rating from BAL40 to BAL29 and that saved our client almost $100,000 on that project. Brett was consultative, proactive, competent and persevering with several generations of inspections and documentation until we got the outcome. Cannot recommend SA Bushfire Solutions highly enough.

I would like to thank Brett Stephens for his time on the Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara lands teaching & training Anangu rangers in aerial fire management and using the latest aerial incendiary machine the R3, training covered the following units:


PUAFIR209B – Work safely around aircraft

PUAFIR312B -  Operate aerial ignition equipment in an aircraft

Safe use and operation of the R3


Recently Brett revisited the lands after an earlier stint in Sept. 2017 his patience and determination in ensuring Anangu rangers fully understood their training and how important it is in terms of safety, variations in weather conditions, adapting to & more importantly listening to the cultural needs & potential concerns of the Anangu traditional owners was superb, all that participated in the activities had taken away good learning’s that will remain with them for some time to come, Brett is an excellent trainer and has so much more to offer not  in aerial fire management but possesses excellent knowledge in vegetation, fire behaviour, and how to read the land during and after fire management exercises.


As an employer I would utilise the excellent services of his company as required and to this day have approached Brett to further support training, planning and strategic fire management on the APY lands.

I worked with Brett to deliver a community engagement process for a local Council who were developing a Bushfire Management Plan. I was constantly impressed with the knowledge, professionalism and expertise in the area of Bushfire prevention. Brett has a wealth of knowledge and experience in fire management that can't be beaten. I wouldn't hesitate to work with them again and would highly recommend their services to anyone requiring sound knowledge and advice in the area of bushfire prevention.
