Community Information Guides - Bushfire (formerly known as Township Protection Plans) are a key source of information for the community and an important tool to emphasise the shared responsibility between the community, fire services and local government.
Guides have been developed for a number of communities statewide that are deemed to be at risk of bushfire or grassfire.
Community Information Guides are dynamic documents which are updated regularly, so please visit this page regularly to ensure that you have the latest Community Information Guide for your town. See also: Places of Last Resort. Note: Some townships will not have a Neighborhood Safer Place - Place of Last Resort or a Community Fire Refuge.
Community Information Guides mailout
Community Information Guides have been developed for newly identified high risk areas. These will be mailed out to residents, along with other fire preparedness material, for the 2012-2013 fire season. Residents living in existing high risk areas, who already received their information pack last year, can download an updated version of their Community Information Guide above.

Use of Victorian Electoral Commission information
To facilitate a mailout to provide information about fire preparedness, the Victorian Electoral Commissioner has permitted the use of the names and addresses of Victorian electors (excluding silent electors and overseas electors) in accordance with section 34 of the Electoral Act 2002. Enrolment information was not provided to CFA, and remained in the control of the Victorian Electoral Commission at all times.
