As the Dandenong Ranges and the Yarra Valley are located in one of the most fire prone regions in Victoria, an integrated approach to fire risk management has been developed from long experience and considerable expertise across National, State and Local agencies.
Agency Fire Roles
The specific role of national, state and local agencies is outlined in Local Agencies Fire Roles and Responsibilities this Summer in and around YCA (pdf). This document contains links to relevant websites that detail specific fire plans and advice for the development of individual resident fire plans and preparation.
