Neighbourhood Safer Places
To date, there have been no identified NSPs within this Shire Council area, as further assessments are being conducted and/or sufficient open spaces already exist.
NSP's are assessed using strict guidelines and calculations therefore not every community will have a suitable location. Regularly monitor this website for updates as new NSP locations will continually be identified.
If you live in a bushfire prone area that does not have a designated NSP location remember this must be considered when preparing your "Bushfire Survival Plan". Preparing your property to increase its resilience to the impact of bushfire and "Leaving Early" will always be the safest option. PREPARE.ACT.SURVIVE.
The Burke Shire Council area is covered by the Rural Fire Service Charters Towers Area Office.
