Kangaroobie Bushfire Plan On high risk fire days (days declared for the South West Fire District with a fire threat rating of High, Very High, Severe or Extreme: see below for Code Red Action Plan) a close watch will be kept on any local fire risks. For this plan any fire within 50 kilometres of Kangaroobie will activate an immediate review of the relevant threat and in the event of a fire that presents any risk to Kangaroobie the following evacuation plan will be enacted. Evacuation Plan: Assemble the group and ensure all group members are present. Contact emergency services (000) to notify the risk and to make them aware of the fact that the group is to be evacuated from the building to a safe area. Contact Popes Buslines (55988031) and arrange buses to evacuate the group to a safe area away from the fire zone – possible safe areas are Port Campbell, Warrnambool, Colac or possibly back home. If an evacuation is not possible immediately, then while we wait for evacuation the following will occur: Kangaroobie staff will organise to walk the group to a safe area by the river (5 minutes from the accommodation). For any campers not capable of walking a vehicle will be used. The river in front of the accommodation is the designated safe area as there is no vegetation nearby and plenty of water available. Once the threat is considered safe the group may return to Kangaroobie. Code Red Day Action Plan: In the event of a Code Red Day being declared for the Kangaroobie area (South West Fire District), all groups will be evacuated back to home on the day previous to the Code Red day. It the camp has not started, the group will be informed that they should stay at home until the Code Red day has passed and then attend the camp with an altered timetable.
