WINTER SEASON PREPARATION
FCRM announces the hosting of a consultation meeting to help shape Falls Creek Arts & Culture Strategy to identify opportunities for arts and cultural participation and interaction in Falls Creek.
 
Building on the Falls Creek Village Master Plan 2014, the creation of a Cultural Strategy will assist in planning creative spaces and public art and cultural opportunities within the Village.
 
Using this process and strategy to generate a community driven initiative that develops a broader platform upon which the Village can use for “transformational” projects; i.e. sculpture, landscape design, visual arts, craft, design, performing arts…etc.
 
The ideas that come from the strategy, will then go into the application and submission through Regional Arts Victoria and the $350,000 Small Towns Transformation community grant to transform the Village.

As the  snow  season is upon  us, it's time  to carry  out  some  checks and maintenance on your fire safety items that in some  instances  have not  been  used since last season.
 
Some items that require maintenance are :-
 
SMOKE ALARMS
 
Units whether battery operated, hardwired or form part of a smoke detection system should be cleaned and where fitted, the batteries should be exchanged.
 
STORAGE OF MATERIALS
 
Items stored in fire escapes or passages in the path of travel to an exit whether combustible or not, are required to be removed as it is an offence against the regulations, and further, can restrict evacuation from the building.
 
SWIMMING POOL/SPA BARRIERS
 
Ensure that the barriers are structurally sound, the gates are self-closing and self-latching and that there are no climbable objects in close proximity of the barrier or gate.
 
SOLID FUEL HEATERS/FIRE PLACES
 
Ensure that the flue and/or chimney is in good condition, cleaned annually, clear of combustible material and not been damaged by snow. The condition of the compliance should also be checked.
 
If you are installing a new or used appliance, ensure that the insulation is carried out by a registered plumber or if electrical, a licensed electrician.
 
EXIT DOORS
 
Ensure  that compliant furniture  has been fitted  and that the door is free of pad bolts or similar hardware that does not allow a single handed action.
 
The door is to operate freely and not be affected by moisture that causes the door to stick and possibly restrict egress from the building in an emergency.
 
PORTABLE FIRE EXTINGUISHERS  AND FIRE BLANKETS
 
Ensure that they have been maintained and located in an accessible position.
 
FIRE ORDERS
 
Ensure that the content is correct, in an accessible location, the floor plan is correctly orientated and the emergency services contact number "000" is noted.
 
 Enquire  if your  Lodge or Apartments Emergency Management Plan is correct.  Mark  Owens  who  is the  Station Officer  for  Falls Creek for  the  2016 Snow Season can be contacted on 0418968186 or by email [email protected] to assist you setting  up your  plan.
 
DRYING ROOMS
 
Ensure that your heater is fit for purpose and the appropriate guards are in place to reduce the likelihood of combustion.
 
TOILETS
 
Where escape hinges have been fitted to the cubicle doors ensure that those who occupy the building are aware of how the door can be removed in an emergency.  One way of doing this would be to provide a note on such doors as to its operation.
 
BALCONIES AND DECKS
 
Carry out an inspection to ensure structural adequacy and that no deterioration  which could cause collapse to occur.  It is suggested that a registered structural engineer carry out this inspection.
 
ESSENTIAL SAFETY MEASURES
 
Ensure that the ESM'S installed in your building have been maintained to the required standard at the nominated interval.
 
If you have any queries please contact the Resort's Building Surveyor, Bruce Howie on 0428 077 852.
