Mt Hotham Municipal Fire Management Plan 2013-2015

The Mount Hotham Municipal Fire Management Committee (MFMPC) is responsible for providing a strategic and integrated approach to fire management within the Mount Hotham alpine resort board area. This task forms part of a broader state and regional framework established under the Emergency Management Act (1986) and is supported by the State Fire Management Planning Committee and the Hume Regional Strategic Fire Management Planning Committee (Hume RSFMPC).

A key responsibility of the Mount Hotham MFMPC is the development of a draft Municipal Fire Management Plan (MFMP) on behalf of the Mount Hotham Municipal Emergency Management Planning Committee for considered endorsement by the Mount Hotham Resort Management Board. This plan, which aligns with the Hume Regional Strategic Fire Management Plan 2011-2021, describes how regional authorities, local government, fire agencies and other relevant organizations can work together to effectively anticipate, respond to and recover from bushfire events affecting Mount Hotham.

While the management of all types of fires is important, this plan has focused on bushfire in the first instance. The life of this plan is for three years and it is envisaged that future updates of this plan will include planning for other types for fire. Furthermore it is important to note that this plan recognizes, but does not duplicate, the extensive work already being undertaken in fire management across the alpine resort board area. This document is essentially a plan for improving integration of this existing work and developing improved methods for working together.
