Neighbourhood Safer Place - Bushfire Place of Last Resort

The purpose of a Neighbourhood Safer Place - Bushfire Place of Last Resort is to provide some protection from the effects of radiant heat during a bushfire.

Neighbourhood Safer Place Sign

A Neighbourhood Safer Place - Bushfire Place of Last Resort is only intended for use when all other plans have failed. It should not be considered as a place to relocate when leaving early, as it will not guarantee safety or survival from a fire, embers or radiant heat.

Travelling to a Neighbourhood Safer Place - Bushfire Place of Last Resort when there is a bushfire may be extremely dangerous due to dense smoke, radiant heat, flying embers, fallen trees and power lines, traffic congestion and accidents.

A Neighbourhood Safer Place - Bushfire Place of Last Resort will not have the capacity to cater for special needs; there will be no support services (food or drink, material aid) or provision for pets. There is no guarantee that emergency services will be present during a bushfire.

A Neighbourhood Safer Place - Bushfire Place of Last Resort should not replace a personal bushfire survival plan. If your plan is to leave early, the safest option is to leave at the beginning of the day when the Fire Danger Rating is declared Severe or Extreme. On a Code Red (Catastrophic) rated fire danger day, the safest option is to leave the night before, or early in the morning.

Council has erected signs alerting people to the Neighbourhood Safer Place - Bushfire Place of Last Resort and will review locations annually.
