Preparing for Fire

The West Wimmera Shire Council has prepared a Municipal Fire Management Plan (MFMP) in conjunction with the Country Fire Authority (CFA) and pursuant to section 55A of the Country Fire Authority Act 1958. The West Wimmera Shire Council MFMP is an integrated document combining plans from the municipality, the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP), Country Fire Authority (CFA), VicRoads and other stakeholders.

There is comprehensive information on how to determine if you are at risk and how to prepare yourself, your family and business for a fire available on the CFA website.

About Fire Danger Ratings (CFA) describes the warning system used during fire.

The Department of Environment and Primary Industries conduct a number of planned burns across the municipality on the public land estate throughout the year. Information on planned burns in your area is available on the DELWP website.
