Neighbourhood Safer Places

A Neighbourhood Safer Place (NSP) is a PLACE OF LAST RESORT and aims to provide some protection from the effects of radiant heat during a bushfire.

NSPs are to be used only when a person's own Fire Plan has failed. Signage has been installed at each NSP.

  • TALBOT – Pioneer Reserve (ground only) – Corner of Fyffe and Scandinavian Crescent.
