It’s Mid-January and already it’s been a busy fire season with major incidents in the east and north-east of the state, fires in the south-west and even in our nearby Plenty Gorge and behind the Mernda Village Adventure Playground.
Looking to social media and the very uninformed comments of well meaning locals is not a great way to get your information in the events of fire or emergency.
We highly recommend that everyone downloads the VicEmergency App from either the Apple App Store or Google Play Store and setup a watch zone around your place of business, residence and other areas that may be of concern to you.
That way you will be able to get the latest updates and advice regarding emergency events that could affect you. You can also use it to look ahead to locations around the state you may be travelling to.
