Fire Prevention

We are committed to operating our network in full compliance with the requirements of the Act and Regulations administered by Energy Safe Victoria (ESV).

Due to prevailing weather conditions and country environments conducive to fires, we acknowledge the need to act proactively in designing and operating our assets to minimise the possibility of a fire ignition.

Being an authority in the distribution of electricity, we acknowledge our responsibility to the local community to consider all relevant practical technologies available for fire prevention.

We will mitigate fire risk to the community and the environment from our assets by instilling the following:

  • Use of skilled people and modern technology
  • Continued development and improvement of methods of environmental management of fire safe distribution assets
  • Implementation of training standards to provide the ‘best practice’ management of vegetation
  • Provision of excellent and responsive customer service.
