Neighbourhood Safer Places - Places of Last Resort

Neighbourhood Safer Place - PLace of Last Resort

  • It should only be used if your Bushfire Survival Plan fails and you have nowhere else to go.
  • Welfare facilities will not be available.
  • It may not provide shelter from smoke and embers.

Council has designated the following Neighbourhood Safer Places:

  • Halls Gap - Visitor Information Centre surrounds, Corner of Grampians Road and Heath Street, Halls Gap, 3381.
  • St Arnaud - Lord Nelson Park Oval, Dunstan Street, St Arnaud, 3478.
  • Stawell - Cato Park, Victoria Street, (opposite Haitts lane) Stawell, 3380.
  • Neighbourhood Safer Places (NSP's) are a place of last resort when all other plans have failed.
  • They can provide some protection from direct flame and radiant heat during a fire but may still be subject to ember attack.
  • NSP's are NOT Relief Centres - there are limited facilities and no support or services are provided.
  • NSP's are not places to relocate to when leaving early.
