Applications for the 2016 Fire Awareness Awards are now closed. Entries will re-open in 2017.

Good luck to all of the entrants for this year. Finalists will be announced in November – stay tuned!

The Fire Awareness Awards is a community focussed awards program that acknowledges the great work of individuals, community groups and organisations who deliver projects that help reduce the incidence and impact of fire in Victoria. Projects can focus on any type of fire, including structure fires (housing, commercial, industrial), bushfires and grassfires.

The Awards have been presented for over 30 years and are a collaborative venture between Victoria’s fire agencies – Country Fire Authority (CFA), Metropolitan Fire and Emergency Services Board (MFB) and Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP).

2016 Fire Awareness Awards categories:

Our, major supporter, RACV Insurance, sees first-hand the impact that fire can have on peoples’ lives when helping their members through the aftermath of fire. For this reason, RACV Insurance is proud to once again support this important fire prevention initiative. As well as supporting the Awards Ceremony, RACV Insurance will provide the RACV Insurance Award for Excellence prize of $10,000 for the most outstanding project.

Additionally, there are up to three special incentive grants of $2000 available to assist individuals, community groups, schools, volunteers or not-for-profit organisations to undertake a new fire project, or further develop an existing fire project.

Entrants who are selected as finalists by the judging panels will be invited to the 2016 Fire Awareness Awards Ceremony in December where the winners will be announced.

Last years Fire Awareness Awards winners were announced at the Awards Ceremony on 2 December 2015 at the RACV City Club. To view the full list of winners here.
