The Australian Volunteer Coast Guard in Victoria has been placed on "STANDBY" to be ready to assist with the current Gippsland bushfire emergency.

If activated, this will be a similar operation to the activation during the Black Saturday events of 2009.

In 2009 Coast Guard assisted from the base in Knoxfield - ferrying goods and equipment as required to the fire affected areas.
