Upper Ferntree Gully CFA Local Preparedness Videos
The local preparedness videos created by Upper Ferntree Gully Fire Brigade were designed to bring together fire information from different sources, and tailor it for the local community. In an engaging four-part series, the videos cover information from preparing a household plan, to understanding fire risk, school closures and community alert sirens. The videos help residents to navigate information about fire and take action more effectively. The target audience is wide-ranging, covering not just families but also single and young people. The videos released on the Ferntree Gully Fire Brigade Facebook page have been designed to capture the interest of viewers and have had thousands of views.
Judges commended the project for being developed by locals for locals and the power of providing information that makes sense to them.
