Neighbourhood Safer Places

An Neighbourhood Safer Place (NSP) is a local open space or building where people may gather as a LAST RESORT to seek shelter from a bushfire.

The following sites are deemed approved NSP areas within the Scenic Rim region, and have been assessed by Queensland Rural Fire Service:

  • Graceleigh Park, 1925 Beechmont Road, Beechmont; and/or
  • Tamborine Mountain Sports Centre, Corner Hartely Road and Long Road, Tamborine Mountain.

NSP information

An NSP may be your contingency plan when:

  • Your Bushfire Survival Plan has failed.
  • Your plan was to stay but the extent of the fire means that your home cannot withstand the impact of the fire and therefore your home is not a safe place to shelter.
  • The fire has escalated to an ‘extreme' or ‘catastrophic' level and voluntary evacuation is your safest option.
