Bushfires are an intrinsic part of Victoria's landscape. We all need to learn from the experiences of major bushfires and improve the way we prevent, prepare for, respond to and recover from fires.
The Knox Municipal Fire Management Plan, prepared by the Knox Municipal Fire Management Planning Committee, reflects the shared responsibilities of government, fire agencies and communities. It demonstrates a collaborative approach between the responsible agencies and covers both public and private lands.
In this plan, approaches to fire management are framed by the assessment of risk. This includes an analysis of the fire risks and identification of options for positive change. It places greater emphasis on addressing underlying causes and seeking long-term, sustainable solutions that incorporate the four essential elements of Emergency Management of planning, preparedness, response and recovery.
