Victorian Bushfire Information Line 1800 240 667


The Victorian Bushfire Information Line (VBIL) is a resource available to the public to gain information about current incidents. It also provides information regarding days of Total Fire Ban, fire restrictions and information concerning the Department of Sustainability and Environment’s prescribed burning program.

During the fire danger period, the call centre is staffed business hours and on days of Total Fire Ban, this gives the caller the option to speak directly to an operator.

Outside of these times, the line has recorded information only. This recorded information contains general information regarding Total Fire Bans and fire safety, as well as the facility to listen to recorded information regarding significant incidents that may have occurred at this time.

All significant fire information is maintained by the SECC Information Unit.

Callers who are deaf, hard of hearing, or have a speech/communication impairment may call the Victorian Bushfire Information Line through the National Relay Service by dialling the numbers below and then asking for 1800 240 667.

Make a Disaster Supply Kit
https://www.wunderground.com/prepare/disaster_supply_kit.asp


We tried to not only cover what an emergency kit should have according to FEMA and The American Red Cross but also from several other authoritative resources as well, and focus on creating a guide that is much easier to understand and put into action by adding custom illustrations, a detailed infographic, and an accompanying checklist to give all the information people need to help them build their own family disaster kit.
