With the warmer months ahead of us and the risk of bush and grass fires, it is important to know of Henty's assembly point in case of a major fire/disaster alert. The assembly point for Henty is the Henty Public School. The school was chosen due to its central position with the nearby Henty and District Lifestyle Centre to cater for overflow and the adjacent fire station. There was also the consideration for catering for crowds being serviced from the main street.
