Municipal Fire Management Plan 2020-2023


The Hume City Council Municipal Fire Management Plan has been reviewed and update for the 2020 to 2023 three-year cycle. 

The plan has been developed by the Hume City Council Municipal Fire Management Planning Committee, which includes representatives from Council, CFA, MFB, Parks Victoria (DELWP), Victoria Police and other stakeholders. All stakeholders contributed knowledge, experience, resources, capability and aim to achieve measurable fire management outcomes through agreed and achievable risk treatments.

The main aim behind planning is protection of life and property. The plan is developed to provide an avenue to build and sustain organisational partnerships, generate a common understanding and purpose with regard to fire management and to ensure that the plans of individual agencies are linked and complement each other .It is a coordinated approach by a range of stakeholders to discuss, plan and manage fire in the community by adhering to a key tenet of emergency planning - before, during and after for emergencies. 

The lead focus of the Hume Municipal Fire Management Plan is on the grass fire risk environment using the Victorian Fire Risk Register(VFRR) as an informing tool.  The objectives of the plan is to:


Identify priorities and coordinate treatments for fire risks


Engage the community to participate actively in fire management planning
