North East Fire Camera Network

North East Fire Camera Network

The North East Bushfire Camera Network was funded through an Australian Federal Government grant under the Digital Regions Initiative scheme. The grant was initiated and the system implementation was coordinated by Towong Shire Council in consultation with DEPI, Parks Victoria, CFA and SP Ausnet.

The project deploys a bushfire spotting camera network across the Towong Shire to facilitate early detection of fires so as to enable early response planning and resource coordination. Such a network assists with improved fire detection and coordination of bushfire response by the Department of Sustainability and Environment, Country Fire Authority and the Towong Shire Council. The camera network is linked to the DSE emergency management centres at Tallangatta and Corryong.
