The Shire does have nominated evacuation centres identified within Local Emergency Management Plans. The selection of a centre is made at the time of the emergency by the relevant authorities, this is then advised to residents by FESA, Shire and Police.
A predetermined centre cannot be nominated as the location of such needs to be made taking into consideration the position of the fire and the characteristics of a specific event.There would be nothing more dangerous than sending residents to a centre which is in the direct path of a fire.
Should a fire be in a local area residents need to determine if they will stay and defend their property or leave early. If residents leave early they would be best advised to go to a house of family or friends outside the district under the threat from the fire.
