Welcome to the Two Way Fire Safety Have Your Say page.

Project Update - Phase 2

Additional funding and a six-month extension has been granted to the Two Way Fire Safety project.

The Two Way Fire Safety project is for Anakie and Breamlea communities, due to the unique conditions identified in the two suburbs.

This extension will provide an opportunity to further engage with Anakie and Breamlea community members prior to the 2021/2022 fire season.

The City has received funding from Country Fire Authority (CFA) through the Safer Together program to conduct a Two Way Fire Safety project in the communities of Anakie and Breamlea. These communities have been identified for this project due to their unique fire risk.

Our vision is to strengthen fire safety processes in these areas, by helping residents in Anakie and Breamlea become actively aware and engaged in their local fire safety plan.

From our initial mail out of 370 households, 189 residents have contacted us and shared their concerns and challenges.

Work has been undertaken to address many of these issues through targeted education sessions, the development of brochures, targeted maintenance of roads, development of new street signage and collaboration with key state government agencies and departments with an influence in fire safety across the City of Greater Geelong.

Please refer to the 'Project Update' section of this page for our Community Engagement snapshot report.
