The document does mention consultation with various stakeholder groups but has neglected to mention anything about the vulnerable such as aged-care facilities, community hospitals, kindergartens etc.
People living in and on the fringe of high risk bush are extremely likely to be impacted by bushfires. Maybe the local CFAs and shire have done this consultation work with individuals or small local groups of individuals/families but it has not be mentioned.
Day or holiday visitors are very vulnerable, maybe not knowing the local area well or unaware of the impact of bushfires in particular areas.
The area around the Great Ocean Rd is a major hazard with often only one or two roads available to evacuate people or to send in fire fighters and other emergency workers. It can be easily cut-off.
