Funerals May be Affected During the Upcoming Fire Season


CCAV wish to reminder cemetery trusts that burials on days of high fire risk may be postponed this upcoming fire season.

In guidelines developed with Victoria’s fire agencies, the CCAV recommends that cemeteries situated in high risk fire locations conduct a risk assessment of their cemetery, develop a Fire Management Plan and if necessary, consider postponing burials on declared Severe, Extreme and Code Red days, in the interest of community safety.

This recommendation, which has the support of the Australian Funeral Directors Association, builds on advice formulated by Victoria’s fire agencies for events scheduled on Total Fire Ban days.

Victorian Government QR Code Service


Further to advice provided at the General Meeting held on 27 November 2020 regarding a QR Code Service, members are encouraged to access a free QR Code Service through the Victorian Government to keep records of visitors, if required.

It’s as simple as registering, downloading and printing the Victorian Government QC Code which can be found at Visitors simply scan the QR code using their smartphone camera. For those with up to date smartphone software, a pop up will appear asking for their first name and contact number. All data collected through the Victorian Government QR Code is securely stored and will be deleted 28 days unless it is specifically requested by the Department of Health and Human Services for contact tracing purposes.

Alternatively, if you wish to use a manual process, a downloadable form can be found at along with a range of supporting signs, posters and templates.
