Forest Fire Management Victoria includes staff from the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP), Parks Victoria, VicForests and Melbourne Water.
Together, their role is to reduce the risk and impact of bushfires on Victoria's parks, forests and other public land. They are responsible for planned burning and preparedness activities, like slashing, mowing and creating fuel breaks on public land.
They are the lead agency for bushfire management on public land, whale stranding or entanglement, dam safety, oiled wildlife, water and wastewater service disruption.
Forest Fire Management Victoria’s firefighters and departmental staff work closely with the Country Fire Authority (CFA), water authorities and catchment management authorities.
