Increase fuel reduction on public land


This petition of residents in the State of Victoria draws to the attention of the Legislative Assembly the need to increase fuel reduction on public land, including road sides, to better protect communities from bushfire.

Residents of East Gippsland who have experienced a devastating bushfire season request that more be done to keep communities safe.

The petitioners therefore request that the Legislative Assembly of Victoria calls on the State Government to return to the 5 percent planned burn target which was based on expert advice provided to the 2009 Black Saturday Royal Commission.
