The Nationals Member for Gippsland South, Danny O'Brien is encouraging Gippslanders to take part in community consultation designed to inform Victoria's Bushfire Management Strategy. The establishment of Victoria's Bushfire Management Strategy is the result of recommendations from inquiries held in response to the Black Summer Bushfires that occurred in the summer of 2019-2020.

Bushfire strategy input

Mr O'Brien said there are very few Gippslanders who do not understand the dangers of bushfires with many having first-hand experience. "This strategy will shape how the government manages bushfire prevention and response for the next ten years."

"Whether you are a CFA volunteer, a rural property owner or just someone with something to contribute I encourage you to take the time to provide input into this Strategy to ensure it adequately reflects the real concerns of those most impacted by bushfires. While you are welcome to make a formal submission, there is also an option to complete a brief survey," Mr O'Brien said.

Consultation on the Bushfire Management Strategy closes on 30 August 2023. For more information on the proposed strategy, or to make a submission or complete the online survey visit Victoria's Bushfire Management Strategy website.
