Neighbourhood Safer Places
We have established three Neighbourhood Safer Places (NSPs), which provide residents in bushfire affected areas a place of last resort during a bushfire.
NSPs were recommended as a result of the 2009 Victorian Bushfire Royal Commission.
Wodonga's NSPs are located at Birallee Park, Martin Park oval number two and Kelly Park.
New signs were erected at these locations to mark them for the community.
NSPs may afford some protection from radiant heat, the biggest killer during bushfire.
However, the degree of safety afforded by the location will depend on a number of factors including the intensity of the bushfire.
Please be aware of the following risks associated with NSPs:
NSPs are not designed to replace a personal bushfire survival plan.
CFA advises that everyone should have a written Bushfire Survival Plan.
Also familiarise yourself with which fire district you are in and the 'Fire Danger Ratings'.
The fire commissioner has also set-up the Your Bushfire Survival website, which provides further important information.
