Community Action - Be Fire Ready
Frankston City is a predominantly residential area, with some rural residential, industrial, commercial and rural areas.
With Frankston being home to 55 natural reserves along with a number of sporting reserves and 11 kilometres of foreshore, and more than 400 neighbourhood and feature parks, fire prevention is a priority.
