Bushfire At-Risk Register (BARR)

Schools, kindergartens and childcare facilities assessed to be most at risk of bushfire are placed on the department's Bushfire At-Risk Register (BARR).

Inclusion on this register is a trigger for action, including:

- pre-emptive relocation, learning from home or closure action plans for schools and co-located services at  the highest risk due to a forecast elevated Fire Danger Ratings in their local government area.

- pre-emptive closure for schools and early childhood services on all days forecasted by the Bureau of Meteorology to be Catastrophic fire danger rating (FDR) in their fire weather district.

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

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