A new agreement for the broadcast of emergency warnings between commercial radio stations and the Victorian Government will provide Victorians with greater access to information and warnings during bushfires and other emergencies.
In line with the Royal Commission recommendation that people need a range of options to increase their safety in the event of bushfire, CFA is working with councils to assess Neighbourhood Safer Places (NSPs).
The Household Bushfire Self Assessment Tool, the new Bushfire Survival Kit and the Community Meetings Online System are now available on the CFA website for the launch of Fire Action Week (11-18 October 2009).
Today, Thursday, 8 October 2009 the Community Meetings Online System will be available to the public for the first time. This new system is a step forward in building on the customer service that CFA has prided itself on for many years.
As the weather heats up so do preparations for Fire Action Week, with CFA staff and volunteers around the state getting involved, showing their commitment to inform and educate the community before the coming fire season.
