Emergencies can happen at any time and are often unexpected. Strathbogie Shire, like most places, is not exempt from emergencies such as bushfire, flood and storms.
It’s the Australian way to lend a hand in times of trouble, but in the aftermath of a natural disaster it is important to remember that the best thing people can do is stay away from affected areas.
In the first instance, trained emergency services personnel will be busy responding to immediate threats, assessing damage and deciding on the best course of relief action. Clean-up and recovery processes are often long and complex, and will take place over the weeks and months that follow.
