Resource: Bushfire Planning for Carers

Carers Victoria has partnered with the CFA to develop resources and an e-learning module to support carers with bushfire planning. The resources are relevant to anyone who provides care or support to family members and/or friends with a disability, mental illness, chronic health issue or age-related condition and who lives in a bushfire-prone region. The resources and e-learning module are free and available to access at any time.

The e-learning module covers seven key topics:

  • Who needs to be prepared – different types of risk environments;
  • Your role is important – understanding the responsibility of the worker and how to help their clients;
  • Start the conversation – questions to get the bushfire safety conversation going;
  • Build the plan – six key areas to develop a Bushfire Survival Plan to leave early;
  • Clients who choose to stay – advice for clients who do not want to leave or build a plan;
  • Making it all work – referral pathway if needed an a reminder of the key steps;
  • Resources at your fingertips – links to resources and where to learn more.

Timing: Allow an hour to complete, including a short sign-in process. This module is designed to operate through the Google Chrome browser on a laptop or PC. They are not designed for tablets or smartphones.
