Bushfire Resilience Initiative

Thanks to everyone who came along to our bushfire resilience lunch on August 24 at the Community Centre. Alyce, Ben and I enjoyed many thought-provoking discussions- we were grateful to hear your valuable perspectives.

Are you interested in disaster resilience but couldn’t make it? We have a short online survey which we’d love you to complete. It should take approximately 10min. You can find it here at this link.

To everyone who came and left contact details with us, we will be sure to keep you informed of the outcomes of the study.
