In Vic these are only used as a last resort. Not sure if 'assembly point'
translates to 'only come here if there are absolutely no other options, and
this place might not be safe anyway'.
There are also community fire refuges:
...my reading there is also 'try really hard not to come here, but if
there's nothing else then turn up'.
Could we add a 'place of last resort' tag?
Relief centres, eg:
...seem to be council operated...
It seems that 'neighbourhood safer places' means something different across
borders. Can anyone in emergency services comment?
