Farmer Bushfire Response Vehicle Identifier Stickers  

Farm firefighting units form an important part of the Shire’s overall bushfire response. To assist authorities identify vehicles which can assist DFES in bushfire response, DFES and the Shire encourage owners of such vehicles or machinery to apply for a Fire Response Vehicle Identifier windscreen sticker. During bushfire events the Shire works with Police and Main Roads to manage or restrict traffic into affected areas. The presence of a Vehicle Identifier Sticker will help in quickly identifying vehicles and machinery which may be permitted on the fire ground. Eligible vehicles include farm firefighting appliances, bulk water trucks and earth moving machinery.

Application forms are available from the Shire Administration office or are downloadable here. Multiple stickers may be issued to persons with multiple suitable vehicles/equipment – one application form per vehicle is required. Owners must have read and understood the “Operating Private Equipment at Bushfires” publication and will make drivers of the vehicle familiar with this document.
