Bushfires and public health

Bushfires have the potential to cause a number of environmental health concerns beyond the immediate damage caused by the fire.

The Victorian Bushfire Information Line provides information during and after major bushfire incidents. It also offers information to help householders, landowners and small businesses reduce bushfire risk.

For more information and factsheets, see Emergencies.
