Survey underway for bushfire affected residents
Published on 08 September 2020
Cessnock City Council is currently conducting a survey to hear from those in the community who were impacted by the last bushfire season.
The survey has been put together with the help of Resilience NSW in order to get a better insight into community needs and the assistance residents may still require.
Council’s Community Recovery Officer, Melissa Boucher will be contacting those who had their properties directly damaged or destroyed during the 2019/20 bushfire season but is also encouraging others to reach out if they have something to share.
“We know that bushfires don’t only affect those who have had their property destroyed. We’d be interested to hear from anyone who has an insight or experience from not only last season but also in previous bushfire events.”
Other community engagement activities are also planned during September that will be conducted in a COVID-19 safe manner.
Anyone interested in doing the survey can contact Melissa at Melissa.firstname.lastname@example.org or phone (02) 4993 4257.
