To commemorate the 30th Anniversary of the Ash Wednesday bushfires, the Victorian Government is inviting people affected by Ash Wednesday to share their stories on a dedicated website.

The site is dedicated to collect stories of recovery, healing and hope in the years after the Ash Wednesday fires and CFA members are encouraged to share their experiences.

These stories will serve as a tribute to those who have experienced one of the worst disasters in the history of Victoria, and to their determination to recover and get their lives back on track.

CFA members are encouraged to share their experiences that relate to the following three areas:

  • individuals and families
  • communities and organisations
  • the landscape.

Stories can be emailed to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. in the following formats:

  • written contributions of up to 1000 words
  • poetry
  • recorded audio contributions up to 10 minutes.

Hand written contributions can be mailed to:

Strategic Communication and Protocol, Department of Premier and Cabinet, 1 Treasury Place, East Melbourne, 3002.

Over the next twelve months a collection of selected stories and short films will be published on the website.
