Bushfire Safer Places

As part of your Bushfire Survival Plan, know where you can relocate to, CFS have developed a brochure explaining where to relocate on the days of Severe, Extreme and Catastrophic Fire Danger, please open the attachment to view:

Bushfire Safer Places

Identified Safer SettlementsSections of Clare, Saddleworth and Riverton townships have been identified as Bushfire Safer Precincts within the Clare & Gilbert Valleys Council as they are relatively safe from fire due to low levels of fuel. Although the CFS have taken every care and precaution in identifying these areas, they will be subjected to spark and ember attack in the event of a fire.  Please open the attachments to view and print safer settlement maps.

Identified Last Resort Refuges

Last Resort Refuges are specific sites in areas outside of safer settlements and safer precincts which will provide a level of protection by providing an appropriate separation distance from the immediate life threatening effects of radiant heat and direct flame contact in a bushfire. It is intended to provide a place of relative safety during a bushfire, but does not guarantee the survival of those who assemble there. Last Resort Refuges should only be accessed when personal Bushfire Survival Plans cannot be implemented or have failed.
