Fire Prevention

Council is attempting to reduce fire hazards within the municipality through the Municipal Fire Prevention Committee. Property owners are required to clean their land to reduce fire hazards at all times.

Prior to and during the fire season, the Municipal Fire Prevention Officer (MFPO) inspects properties to ensure fire hazards are removed. Failure to reduce or clear fire hazards may lead to fire hazard orders being issued. Non-compliance may lead to penalties being imposed

For further information contact our MFPO on (03) 5349 1100.

You can help protect your property by:

  • Clearing leaves and twigs from roof gutters
  • Use watercourses and other natural features as firebreaks
  • Isolating potential fire sources such as incinerators and rubbish pits
  • Assessing your water supply and storage in terms of quantity and availability for fire fighting.
