Bushfire recovery in wet weather. While this rain is very welcome for our region it is yet another challenge for people living in temporary accommodation following our bushfires.

Council and recovery agencies are ready to help anyone who needs assistance in these wet conditions. Emergency accommodation can be coordinated by calling our recovery hotline on 6499 2345.
