Bushfire planning kit for tourism business

Bushfire Planning Kit Cover_low

Tourism Victoria, in partnership with CFA, has produced a new toolkit to assist tourism businesses prepare for bushfires.

The Tourism Business Fire Ready Kit guides business owners through the decision making process to develop a plan to suit their business. It helps businesses understand their risks, prepare their business and employees, plan how to inform their customers, identify their triggers to act and prepare a plan.

A written plan may save lives by helping employers to stay focused and respond in the best possible way when under pressure. Preparation may also help to minimise the loss of profits and get a business back up and running more quickly after the threat of fire has passed.

The Tourism Business Fire Ready Kit can be downloaded as a PDF or Word document HERE

It will also be made available at a range of events being held for the tourism industry in Victoria over the next several months.
