BENDIGO'S Fire and Storm Plan will be tested on Wednesday and Thursday during an emergency services' operation.

The test will include a field exercise with a scenario involving several hazards requiring an all agencies response. 

“The exercise is an opportunity to test more complex emergency situations in a safe and controlled environment” said exercise coordinator Mark Cattell said.

The exercise will be at Pipers Lane, East Bendigo.

Access to all businesses in the area will be available and traffic management points will be in place to direct traffic during the exercise period between 8.30am and 2.00pm.  Motorists are asked to approach the area with caution.
