Hi Roderick, although Bairnsdale is outside the potential fire impact area, there is a still a risk of new fires starting, as well as other issues such as smoke or road closures. Please stay informed and monitor conditions on the VicEmergency app or . ^TW

Do you mean Bairnsdale should be evacuated? And Mallacoota, more than 150 km from the nearest fire, and at least 75 km from the zone defined as being at risk? Does your advice cover all of East Gippsland, or just the zone you define as at risk? Please resolve your ambiguity.

Hi Tim, if you are in the potential fire impact area you should leave today to friends and family who live outside of the area. We are recommending everyone leaves the area because of the risk: . ^TW

Why is Beyond the Valley still allowed to keep going? There’s thousands of people there and not many roads out. Falls cancelled surely Beyond the valley should follow suit. Worried about my mates
