Land class fencing, sediment fences, stock containment areas, wildlife fences, BlazeAid, and DELWP's rehabilitation policy for repair of fences damaged by fire and fire control lines.

Land class fencing

After a fire there is an opportunity to re-think a property's layout, including internal fence lines and renewing internal fences by land classes. Doing a whole farm plan course may assist with this process.

Stock containment areas

A stock containment area is carefully selected, fenced section of a property that is set up to periodically hold,feed and water livestock. Stock containment areas are primarily used to protect soil and pastures during adverse seasons such as droughts, and after fires.

BlazeAid is volunteer-based organisation that works with families, landowners and individuals in rural Australia after natural disasters such as fires and floods. Working alongside rural landowners and their families, BlazeAid volunteers help rebuild fences that have been damaged or destroyed in disasters such as fires.

BlaizAid is looking at setting up a camp in Halls Gap to help with the recovery from the February 2024 bsufires in Western Victoria. More details at BlazeAid.
