Mount Hotham

Bushfire Emergency Management Plan

Bushfire risk management is complex within the MHAR due to its isolated location, steep topography, climate, environmental significance, management arrangements and the vegetation in the surrounding Alpine National Park. The Alpine Resorts (Management Act) 1997 enables the MHARMB to temporarily restrict access, control visitor movement within the resort and or deem areas to be off limits during emergencies.

The purpose of this Community Bushfire Emergency Management Plan (BEMP) is to enhance community bushfire safety within the Mount Hotham Alpine Resort (MHAR). Its key objective is to ensure that life is prioritised in the event of a bushfire impacting MHAR.
