Neighbourhood Safer Places
The purpose of a Neighbourhood Safer Place - Place of Last Resort is to provide some protection from the effects of radiant heat during a bushfire.

A Neighbourhood Safer Place - Place of Last Resort is only intended for use when all other plans have failed. It should not be considered as a place to relocate to when leaving early, as it will not guarantee safety or survival from fire, embers or radiant heat.

Travelling to a Neighbourhood Safer Place - Place of Last Resort when there is a bushfire may be extremely dangerous due to dense smoke, radiant heat, flying embers, fallen trees and power lines, traffic congestion and accidents.

A Neighbourhood Safer Place - Place of Last Resort will not have the capacity to cater for special needs; there will be no support services (food or drink, material aid) or provision for pets. There is no guarantee that emergency services will be present during a bushfire.

A Neighbourhood Safer Place – Place of Last Resort should not replace a personal bushfire survival plan. If your plan is to leave early, the safest option is to leave at the beginning of a day when the Fire Danger Rating is declared Severe or Extreme. On a Code Red (Catastrophic) rated fire danger day, the safest option is to leave the night before, or early in the morning.
