As the Shire’s recovery process following Tropical Cyclone Seroja continues, we will be establishing a Local Recovery Coordination Group (LRCG).

The LRCG will operate instead of the Shire’s Local Emergency Management Committee (LEMC). It is not a decision-making body, but will provide advice back to Council and help to inform regional recovery strategies as part of a community-led recovery process.

Members will be drawn from the existing LEMC, but other community members and organisations are invited to join the group. The group’s first meeting will take place in September (time and date to be confirmed), following the arrival of the DFES Community Recovery Officer (who will be based in Morawa and provide assistance to the LRCG).

A copy of the LRCG Terms of Reference can be downloaded by clicking here.

If you believe you have skills or experience that can aid our recovery process and you would be interested in being a part of the LRCG, please contact Nils Hay, CEO at or call 08 9928 1102 to express your interest.
