Community members are being urged to keep family, friends and pets safe during New Year's Eve celebrations on Tuesday.
Emergency service organisations have prepared for a busy night with extra members on hand to assist communities if required.
Ambulance Victoria has allocated extra paramedics in parts of of the state while Victoria Police have a statewide operation in place.
Meanwhile, City of Greater Bendigo manager safe and healthy environments Caroline Grylls said pet owners should have a plan in place for their pets while fireworks displays are on.
"Dogs can try to escape the noise (of fireworks) and can become quite anxious," she said. "Pets may dig out of a yard or jump a fence they have never jumped before, so inside is a great place for them to be.
"We really encourage community members to keep their pets with them while fireworks are on.
"The best thing to do is to stay with them, try to distract them with food or games and provide a safe space for them to hide."
Council rangers will be on call if pets escape after being frightened by fireworks.
"In the past few years we have found the community is quite good at keeping pets safe," Ms Grylls said. "But you should ensure your pets are microchipped and have a tag on with your phone number on it so rangers can get pets back to you as soon as possible.
Victoria Police Acting Assistant Commissioner Tim Hansen said the public would notice a highly-visible police presence on New Year's Eve as an extensive safety and security plan was rolled out across Victorian cities, towns, coastlines and popular holiday destinations.
"We're particularly focused on anti-social behaviour, violence, and drink and drug driving and we simply won't tolerate any activity that puts others at risk," he said.
"If you choose to come (to any) regional events across Victoria to cause trouble on New Year's Eve, don't bother; you will be arrested and held to account if you break the law."
Ambulance Victoria has rostered-on extra paramedics in parts of the state to help the community.
"Ambulance Victoria puts a lot of work into planning for New Year's Eve," Acting director of emergency management Justin Dunlop said. "We've done as much as we can do to prepare for the night, and now it's up to the community."
