Community Recovery Committee
A Community Recovery Committee has been formed to assist with the recovery of affected communities in Benalla and Wangaratta from the impact of the Stewarton, Lake Rowan-Warbys fire last month.

The CRC consists of a range of agency, non-government organisation (including Red Cross and the Victorian Council of Churches emergency ministry), LandCare and Service Club representatives who will work together to help communities recover over the weeks and months ahead.  Representatives from the affected communities will also be sought to participate as members of the CRC.  

The CRC will coordinate activities such as provision of fodder to farmers, volunteer coordination, community meetings and other communications.  The CRC will also have a role in working with affected farmers and residents on how best to work with their areas to ensure there is timely delivery of resources and activities and that as far as possible services don't duplicate or overlap.

The CRC will also ensure that services are available in a consistent way during the Christmas Holiday period.  

The CRC will meet on a regular basis during the recovery phase of the fires and contact with members of the CRC can be made through either Benalla Rural City or Rural City of Wangaratta councils on their customer service phone numbers.  For support, advice and assistance Council has recovery line numbers, for Rural City of Wangaratta 03 5722 8183 and for Benalla City Council 03 5760 2600. The State Government has also activated he Victorian Emergency Recovery Information Line on 1300 799 232.

Information about the CRC and outcomes of meetings will be provided on Council websites and via social media such as Facebook and Twitter.
