Building a better understanding of bushfire risk-DELWP

Jun 9, 2021

DELWP is asking for community input to gather data from community members about their thoughts about living with bushfire risk. You can have your say up until the 30 June, see the detailed information taken from the Engage Victoria website below.


Managing bushfire risk is an ongoing and shared responsibility and everyone has a role. The collective knowledge and experience of all Victorians can help shape the government’s approach.

To do this, we need local communities to be involved in decision making about bushfire management by sharing your thoughts about living with bushfire risk.

Your feedback through this survey will help us improve how we engage and communicate about bushfire risk. It will also help us develop a range of bushfire risk measures that are more meaningful and useful for communities. Your feedback will also inform the development of the whole of sector bushfire strategy.

We want to understand what you care about most, what you think are the most effective ways of managing bushfire risk and what type of information is helpful in supporting your understanding.

Get involved

We are seeking input from the community and people who may be affected by bushfire risk where they live or work. Until  30 June 2021, you can participate and share your thoughts by completing the survey here.

Face-to-face community engagement is challenging in the current health situation. Our team have been adapting activities to ensure the public can still have conversations with DELWP and other fire and emergncey management agencies. We will continue to follow all guidelines to make sure everybody is safe.

Next steps

All feedback will be collected and collated to help us create a simple and more meaningful performance measure for fuel management, that can be used to inform how to reduce bushfire risk for regional Victorians.

A summary of the feedback received will be published on Engage Victoria.
