A Neighbourhood Safer Place - Bushfire Place of Last Resort (NSP-BPLR) is not a community fire refuge or emergency relief centre. NSP-BPLRs are places of last resort during the passage of a bushfire, and are intended to be used by persons whose primary bushfire plans have failed.
NSP-BPLRs are places of relative safety only. They do no guarantee the survival of those who assemble there. There may also be serious risks to safety encountered in travelling to NSP-BPLRs during a bushfire.
Depending on the position and direction of a bushfire, a designed NSP-BPLR may not be safer than other locations within the area.

Bicentennial Community Park Between Carpark and High Street
Corner High Street (Dimboola-Rainbow Road) and Lloyd Street, Dimboola.
