Disaster help

A Red Cross and Country Fire Authority, CFA, donation of emergency and bushfire management information packages will provide Ararat residents with ‘invaluable’ advice on how to prepare for natural disasters.

Ararat Rural City Council has joined Red Cross Ararat and CFA District 16 to provide emergency resources and support to protect the region’s ‘most vulnerable residents’.

Council chief executive Tim Harrison said the material relating to emergencies and bushfire management would support residents to create a holistic plan and better prepare their homes.

“Our region has faced a range of climate hazards such as drought, bushfires and floods. Council recognises an event can happen at any point and better emergency preparation can help save lives,” he said.
