THE scope of an inquiry into Tasmania's recent bushfire crisis has been revealed in Premier Lara Giddings' State of the State address.

The premier started her speech today by thanking the many Tasmanians who had helped and supported fire-ravaged communities after fierce fires swept through the state in early January.

But she said there were always things that could be done better.

The terms of reference for the bushfire inquiry were announced, covering everything from the cause of the fire, the use of social media during the emergency, and the subsequent clean-up efforts.

Ms Giddings said the public had also been invited to have a say on the terms of reference "so we can ask the right questions and get the answers we need".

"We must learn from these events to ensure we are better prepared in future because climate change will result in more extreme weather more often, which means we will experience more bushfires," she said.

As expected, the premier promised no forced redundancies for the 27,000 Tasmanians employed in the state's public sector.

She also announced new energy concessions for Tasmania's most needy households, a one-stop shop for Housing Tasmania clients, and new funding to expand the state's wine industry.
