Monash University Disaster Resilience Initiative (MUDRI) has a strong interest in helping communities develop their resilience, particularly in the setting of disasters, emergencies and unexpected events.
As a result we created a Compendium of case studies that reflects Victorian Community-based Resilience Building Case Studies, which represents an Australian first.
The Compendium of Victorian Community-based Resilience Building Case Studies, published online in August 2016, provides free access for all. The Compendium includes case studies of resilience-building initiatives from across Victoria, offering knowledge about community-strengthening activities for researchers, government agencies, and community members interested in increasing resilience at a local level. Readers can draw on the examples and expertise embedded in each project. The Compendium enables Victorian communities to showcase their resilience building activities through shared lessons, insights, and challenges. Project creators can share ideas, explain how they solved problems, and report on how they discovered new directions or found unexpected pieces of wisdom.

Home and Community Care providers are often required to work and travel in high bushfire risk areas, to visit clients
and patients in need of care. These employees require fire safety knowledge to ensure they remain safe during the
fire season. However, patients and clients living in high risk bushfire locations are also at risk. If patients/clients have
restricted mobility or are vulnerable given their health status it is important that those providing services to them can
prompt and assist them to have a realistic and achievable leave-early plan. People who are housebound and/or have
health problems may not attend local FRV Community Meetings or take part in other fire safety events and initiatives.
An effective way to reach more vulnerable people is through the outreach service.

The Fire Ready for Carers program is an ongoing program, and consists of four separate presentation modules. These
modules can be delivered in the one session or separately depending on the need of the employer and their staff.
The four modules include

Module 1- Bushfire safety for workers in bushfire prone areas
Module 2 – Bushfire survival training awareness
Module 3 (Specialist module): Assisting vulnerable clients and patients to develop a plan
Module 4 - Home fire safety awareness













An expectation is that at a local level (District or Regional) a stakeholder analysis be undertaken of all local
Community Care Providers. Local council/s, through the community/social services area, can assist with this analysis
and are a key stakeholder in this program. Once relationships are established locally, the program can be offered to
all Community Care providers and be prioritised to those who provide outreach services to vulnerable clients and
patients living in high-risk areas. The program delivery could include the following groups of care providers

 Home and Community Care (HACC) Workers, which is usually through local councils
 District Nurses
 Maternal Health Nurses
 Community Correctional Staff
 Occupational Therapists
 Children and Family Services Staff
 Community Mental Health Workers
 Indigenous Health Provider Staff
 Community Wellbeing Volunteers such as Meals on Wheels
