Bushfire At-Risk Register (BARR)

Schools, kindergartens and child care facilities assessed to be at the highest risk of fire are placed on the department's Bushfire At-Risk Register (BARR). Inclusion on this register is a trigger for the school, kindergarten or child care facility to pre-emptively close on days determined Code Red in their Bureau of Meteorology district, as well as other pre-emptive and preparedness actions in line with their fire risk category.

Schools, kindergartens and child care facilities with a lower fire risk (those assessed to be in fire risk Category 4) are listed on the department’s Category 4 list.

If you have queries relating to the register, please email emergency.management@education.vic.gov.au.

For information regarding closures of schools, kindergartens, child care facilities or bus services, refer to emergency closures.

You can also access the Victorian Registrations and Qualifications Authority's (VRQA) Guidelines on bushfire preparedness.

For general information regarding emergencies or Code Red days, read emergencies.
