Community ideas to prepare for and recover from natural disasters


Do you have a great idea to help your community recover from natural disasters? Council’s Recovery Team is looking for your help. The Team wants to work with residents and/or community groups to build community connection, resilience and adapt to extreme weather events. No idea is too big or too small!!

Communities know their community the best.  Local communities know their history, risks, people, resources, capacities and geographical location better than anyone from outside the community.  The Recovery Team want to understand this better and see what Council can do to support your community with your idea(s).  

Ideas could be:

  • Create a recovery plan in your area.
  • Community gatherings/events.
  • Ways to understand extreme weather events in your area.
  • Build community connection to help each other in emergencies.

We know you can be busy at times, and we don’t want to take up too much of your precious time. You can contribute as much or as little as you like. 

You won’t be asked to sit on a committee and the team members can come out to you.  Please contact the Recovery Team on 1300 797 363.  Alternatively, you can fill out this form.
