The Centre will be a ‘one-stop-shop’ for residents seeking advice and support after the bushfires which destroyed one home and a service station, and led to evacuations, power outages and smoke damage to several homes.

There will be representatives from a number of State Government agencies including the Department of Fire and Emergency Services (DFES), Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions (DBCA) and the Department of Communities.

Red Cross volunteers will provide recovery support, while the Spiers Centre will help with crisis and emergency relief and financial counselling.

The City will have customer support staff available to answer queries and direct people to support services.

Computer access and tea and coffee facilities will also be available.
