Municipal Fire Management Plan
Throughout the country areas of Victoria, a Municipal Fire Management Planning Committee (MFMPC) is established in each municipality under the provisions of the Country Fire Authority Act. This body has a statutory duty to prepare and maintain a Municipal Fire Management Plan and to coordinate and recommend to appropriate authorities actions for:
Identifying fire risks;
- Specifying how risks are to be treated;
- Specifying who is to be responsible; and
- Suppressing fires that occur within their area.
What is a fire hazard?
Fine fuels such as long dry grass, fallen leaves and twigs are the main fire hazards around your house. Anything smaller in diameter than your little finger is a fine fuel.
Report any fire risk concerns either on public or private property to Council on 13 WWSC or submit the online customer request form.
