Actions to recover from a fire may start while the emergency is still active and can continue for many months afterwards.
Fires in parks may force the closure of roads, tracks and visitor facilities. They can burn trees and destroy assets such as toilets and picnic tables.
Parks Victoria try to reopen any closed areas as soon as possible. However, reopening may take some time. Infrastructure may need to be replaced or hazards such as falling trees may make the area unsafe.
The Victorian Government provides a range of support services and programs to assist families, businesses and farmers affected by emergencies across Victoria. www.recovery.vic.gov.au
