Over recent years our local community has experienced the devastation of the bushfires, droughts and floods. When the Black Summer bushfires impacted the Eurobodalla our Rural Fire Service, emergency service workers and volunteers were forced to operate out of a small community hall. This isn’t good enough.

That’s why I have been fighting for an Emergency Operations Centre (EOC) for the Eurobodalla region.

An Emergency Operations Centre will provide a dedicated location for operational needs, coordination of health service resources and responses to all emergency situations or major incidents that impact the entire Eurobodalla region.

The Morrison Government has no disaster preparedness plan – they have left our community behind. We’ve seen it during the bushfires and we’re seeing it with COVID-19. It’s always too little, too late.

Our community knows that we need to be prepared for not “if” but when a disaster next hits our region.

What can you do? Sign the below petition to call for an Emergency Operations Centre (EOC) for the Eurobodalla.
