Survey for Bushfire Affected Residents

Council has partnered with Service NSW and Resilience NSW to create a short survey to further understand bushfire affected residents needs and preferred contact points. From week starting 31 August 2020, residents who connected with Council and/or the Community Hub for assistance will will be sent the survey via email and some residents may receive a phone call from the Red Cross. If your property was damaged or destroyed and you think we may not have up-to-date contact details for you, please email recovery@wollondilly.nsw.gov.au or call 4677 9654. 

 

Get Ready Weekend 2020

Following the devastating 2019/20 bushfire season, communities are understandably keen to know more about getting ready in the lead up to the 2020/21 season. To support early planning and preparation, NSW Rural Fire Service will once again host their annual Get Ready Weekend on 19-20 September, in person and online. Follow your local RFS brigade’s Facebook page for information as it becomes available. You can also visit the Rural Fire Service website for more information.
