Community-Led Bushfire Preparedness in Action: The Case of Be Ready Warrandyte

Be Ready Warrandyte (BRW) was an award-winning, community-led bushfire preparedness project instigated by community members and coordinated by the Warrandyte Community Association from May 2012 to June 2015. Its goal was “to have more Warrandyte households with effective bushfire plans”. It involved close collaboration between community volunteers, local governments and the Country Fire Authority (CFA).

BRW involved a diverse range of locally tailored preparedness and awareness-raising activities, e.g. a humorous video, interactive scenario planning workshops, and a tour of local fire bunkers.
