On 3 March, 2021 Mt Beauty was visited by the Inspector General Emergency Management, Tony Pearce who wished to get community feedback on recovery activities conducted by Bushfire Recovery Victoria during the past 12 months. MBNCI and KCC hosted this event and provided a barbecue for community members who attended.
Community Workshops and Consultation: Red Cross and IGEM
Red Cross Australia has offered to conduct a two-day resilience workshop at MBNCI on February 24 and 25. Key stakeholders from Alpine Shire, Alpine Health, BRV, CRC, CFA, VicPol, DELWP and community members were invited to attend.
Day 1 : The objective of the workshop was as follows:
To equip the Mount Beauty KCC with an understanding of what they can (and can't) expect from Emergency Services, including the Shire during emergency response and the early recovery phase.
To provide the KCC with key contacts in Emergency Services and Shire personnel and information about access to key resources.
To develop a series of maps of Mount Beauty, Tawonga and surrounds showing risks, assets, vulnerabilities and resources.
To develop a framework to build on community connectivity.
To facilitate discussion among the KCC on next steps and desired outcomes.
Day 2 : The purpose of this workshop is for the Mount Beauty community to hear from a panel of local Emergency Service Representatives about their roles and responsibilities and what the community can expect from them during and immediately after an emergency event (fire, flood, storm, power outage etc). The panel will include representatives from Alpine Shire, Victoria Police, State Emergency Services, Red Cross, Bushfire Recovery Victoria, the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning and Parks Victoria.
