Community Fire Refuges Policy 2015

Victoria’s Community Fire Refuges policy was released by the-then Fire Services Commissioner on 13 October 2011. It was last revised in June 2015 to reflect learnings from the Community Fire Refuge pilot program conducted in 2012-13.

The policy provides the framework for identifying, establishing, managing and maintaining community fire refuges in areas of very high risk where other bushfire survival options are limited.

Note: This policy is now under review to ensure it reflects the learning’s from the Community Fire Refuge pilot program
