An NSP is a local open space or building where people may gather, as a last resort, to seek shelter from a bushfire.


Use of an NSP may be your contingency plan when:
– Your Bushfire Survival Plan has failed.
– Your plan was to stay but the extent of the fire means that your home cannot withstand the impact of the fire and therefore your home is not a safe place to shelter.
– The fire has escalated to an ‘extreme’ or ‘catastrophic’ level and voluntary evacuation is your safest option.
