As part of managing Victoria's parks and reserves, Parks Victoria supports the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP) to prepare for, fight and recover from bushfires on public land.
Our focus is bushfire fuel management – this is how we reduce the shrubs, bark and leaf litter that fuel bushfires. We do this through planned burning and other activities, like slashing, mowing and creating fuel breaks.
Fire awareness is everyone's responsibility. No matter where you live, it's up to you to understand your fire risk and be ready to act if fire breaks out. This website was developed to ensure that information is accessible and available to assist the community in understanding the survival options in Victoria.
