Are you ready! How will you cope when your world becomes unpredictable?

How will you recover?

These are questions emergency management professionals will be asking residents at a bushfire ‘scenario’ in October.

The event will model a realistic bushfire which could easily hit the Greater Warrandyte area including Wonga Park and Park Orchards.

It is organized by the Warrandyte Community Association’s ‘Be Ready Warrandyte’ campaign which has developed local scenario planning to assist residents review their fire plans, challenge their thinking and expect the unexpected.

“There are still many householders who are unprepared and others who need to review their plans if there is another fire’, said BRW Chair, Dick Davies.

“It will especially help young families and new residents as well as those of us who may have got a bit complacent recently.

“This is a scenario with a difference. It will push the boundary a bit further into loss of property and potential loss of life.

“We plan to include the latest work on ‘experiential/immersive’ developments which enable people to experience what it would be like,” Mr Davies said.

The Scenario will involve Local Council Emergency Managers, CFA, Police, Emergency Management Victoria and local schools, businesses and other organisations.
