Bushfires are recognised as a major risk threatening life and property within the Wellington Shire. As a community, we all have a responsibility to be prepared for fire to enhance the safety and general wellbeing of our community.

The VicEmergency website has a wealth of resources to help you understand your fire risk and know what to do before and during a fire.

The VicEmergency App includes warning and incident notifications for fire, flood, storm, earthquake, tsunami, weather warnings, shark sightings, beach closures and more.

Wellington Shire is in the West and South Gippsland Fire District.
