Attachment 9 - Strategic Fire Management Roads

At a meeting of a subcommittee of the Municipal Fire Management Planning Committee in August 2016 the matter of Strategic Fire Management Roads was discussed at length resulting the renaming of such roads according to their potential usage in a fire event.

3 categories of road and their required treatments were agreed on being:

  1. Strategic Fire Control Break Road
  2. Strategic Fire Access Road
  3. Strategic Community Access Road

1. Strategic Fire Control Break Road

Is a road where the fire agencies would attempt to fight or pull up a fire on an average fire day.

Treatment: Where possible all grass to be slashed from fence line to fence line and all dead and fallen vegetation to be removed from roadside.


2. Strategic Fire Access Road

Is a road not deemed to be suitable for pulling up a fire but is suitable for emergency services vehicles to travel during a fire event.

Treatment: Where possible all grass to be slashed from fence line to fence line and all dead and fallen vegetation to be removed from roadside.


3. Strategic Community Access Road

Is a road to use by the community to leave an area that is currently experiencing a fire event.

Treatment: On a Regional Roads road all grass to be slashed 3 metres from roadside in alignment with current Regional Road practice, for City of Greater Geelong roadsides grass to be cut as per standard fire prevention works process and all dead and fallen vegetation to be removed from roadside.

All roads listed below have been ground truthed to ensure that they were able to meet the requirements of that particular road type. It is understood that some roads may be added over time to the attached list and some roads may be removed.

It also acknowledged that on all Strategic roadsides that 100% maintenance of the roadside may not be achievable due to current vegetation on the roadsides.

It is understood that prior to a fire event all roads can be considered Community Access Roads, during a fire event roads may be closed as they will be required for emergency vehicles only.
