Are you fire ready?
We strongly recommend all residents prepare and maintain their property in a ‘fire ready condition’.
The CFA and Shire encourage all residents to have a bush fire plan for their family and property. Visit the CFA website or contact the VicEmergency Hotline on 1800 226 226 for further information.
Your safety may depend on your preparation, please check our emergency preparedness page for more information.
Fire Prevention Inspection Program
The Shire's Fire Prevention Officers inspect properties in the lead-up to summer and during the CFA’s Declared Fire Danger Period to see if there are fire hazards that need to be addressed on private land. Where fire hazards are identified on private land a statutory Fire Prevention Notice will be issued under the Country Fire Authority Act 1958 directing works take place to remove the fire hazard within a specified time frame.
For more information see the Fire Prevention on Private Property page.
Learn more about what the Shire is doing for fire management to help mitigate fire risk.
