Pamphlet - 'Powercor & CFA Working Towards A Fire Safe Victoria', Country Fire Authority & Powercor, Victoria, Apr 2007 Document Reg. No: HT 26344

Summary:
CFA and Powercor pamphlet titled 'Powercor & CFA Working Towards A Fire Safe Victoria', published in April 2007. It outlines general information about dealing with fire safety during bushfire season and the impact of electricity supply and trees in rural and bushland areas. Content includes what might happen during and after a bushfire, and the division of responsibility of maintenance of power lines between private and public line owners. This 2007 pamphlet was still in public use after the bushfires of February 2009. Duplicate of HT 26342.
Description:
DL double sided pamphlet, three colour, red border, white centre, with hand drawn image of an house, power line, a tree and sparks flying from the tree.
Statement Of Significance:
The bushfires of February 2009 have changed forever the way in which we think of fire risk. This collection of public education material still available after Black Saturday shows how difficult it is for authorities to keep pace with creating appropriate, current and relevant publications. The inclusion of both flood and fire information for the same region also illustrates the challenges faced by local government and other authorities when dealing with increasing extremes of climate.
