The Emergency Planning Advice Service (EPAS) is designed to support people who have a disability, are older, or have a chronic or acute medical condition. It is being developed as part of CFA's Preparing Vulnerable People (PVP) project.

The Preparing Vulnerable People project aims to improve how bushfire/emergency preparedness plans are developed and acted on for those who are at greatest risk*.

What we need from you!


We have developed a new targeted household service called the Emergency Planning Advice Service (EPAS).

The program model has been informed by the Person-Centred Emergency Preparedness (P-CEP) Framework. This utilises a conversation guide used by people with disability to tailor emergency preparedness planning to their individual support needs.

The program will be co-delivered alongside Red Cross, this means participants can get help planning for other emergencies as well.

To have your say:

  • Read the draft program model, and then
  • Complete our quick survey (see tab below),
  • Ask any questions you have (see tab below), and
  • Share your stories of bushfire safety (see tab below).

We will make sure that the information you provide us is used to inform the program model structure and future trials of the program.
