Victoria is one of the most fire-prone areas in the world and bush fires occur every summer, so it is especially important for Tourism operators to have an emergency fire plan ready.

 

Tourism Victoria, together with the Country Fire Authority (CFA), have put together a kit to assist Tourism operators in putting their fire plan together.
