multi-agency bushfire briefing sessions

The Yarra Ranges Council, CFA, Victoria Police, Department of Sustainability and Environment and Parks Victoria will be presenting joint fire preparation briefing sessions to inform the community about the actions they are taking to prepare for the coming summer fire-danger season.

All members of the community are invited to attend and will have an opportunity to hear from each organisation and ask questions.

The sessions are designed to inform communities about the work all agencies have undertaken in planning and preparation for this year’s fire season.

Sessions will be held at 7.30pm unless otherwise advised on:
25th - Yarra Junction Recreation Reserve
26th - Olinda Community House
1st - Upwey High School
3rd - Silvan Fire Station
3rd - Warburton Upper Yarra Arts Centre, Mechanics Hall
8th - Ferny Creek Horticultural Society
8th - Mt Evelyn Community Hall
14th - Healesville Memorial Hall
15th at 7pm - Seville Public Hall
16th - Woori Yallock DSE/CFA meeting room

Meetings will be cancelled on days of Total Fire Ban.

These briefings are not designed to answer residents’ questions about preparing individual properties for the summer season. The CFA is, however, continuing to provide separate Fire Ready Victoria sessions around the region where residents can get information. The local brigades have been very proactive with signage detailing local briefings. If you haven’t been to a local brigade briefing and want to know when one is next on visit this CFA website
