Bushfire Recovery Event to Strengthen and Support Community
This free public event will bring together community, emergency and recovery services all under one roof to support, prepare and empower bushfire affected communities.
Mayor of Lithgow City Council Ray Thompson strongly encouraged residents to attend the event to receive vital information and connect with important recovery services.
“The 2019-2020 bushfires directly impacted 53 percent of the Lithgow LGA,” Mayor Thompson said. “Following such devastation, Lithgow Council wants to ensure everyone in the community feels supported and connected. Many residents have experienced trauma, financial hardship, and loss of property.
“This event will bring together all the vital services for residents to gain support, be equipped with the information they need to be prepared and stay safe.
“It’s also an opportunity to acknowledge the outstanding commitment of all our volunteers who have supported communities of greater Lithgow during and after the 2019/ 2020 bushfires.”
The Bushfire Recovery and Community Day will offer the same event program across both Saturday and Sunday. The inaugural event will feature an expo of bushfire products and services, engaging presentations from bushfire experts and informative workshops sharing knowledge and experience. Bushfire recovery support services will also provide information on available assistance.
