All of Victoria is at risk of bushfire. Whether you live in the bush, on a farm, near the coast or in a suburban area surrounded by grassland, or if you plan to travel in these areas, you could be affected by a bush, grass or scrub fire.

For all life threatening emergencies call "000".

Every Victorian needs to look at their home and surroundings, assess the risk of bushfire and develop a written Bushfire Survival Plan. This plan details how you will prepare yourself and your home, and helps you decide what to do if threatened by bushfire.

It is important to remember that fire doesn't only threaten people who live in dense bush. Suburban homes were destroyed by bushfire last summer. Embers can travel kilometres ahead of a bush, grass or scrub fire, igniting leaves in gutters, vegetation, fences and other items around the home.

This section of the website has been developed specifically to assist the overall community to access advisory information to prepare, respond and recover from bushfire.
