The ongoing bushfires are impacting our community members in many differing ways.
The indirect effects of bushfires are wide ranging and include short and long term adverse effects on physical and mental health; the social and economic costs of rebuilding damaged infrastructure; the loss of pets, livestock, wildlife and native bushland; as well as environmental impacts such as damage to water catchments and the potential effects on the global carbon cycle.
Hawkesbury City Council will hold a community meeting and barbeque for local community members about the current bush fires on Monday, 16 December commencing at 6.30pm at Horrie Eley Hall, 2996 Putty Road, Colo Heights. All welcome.
Representatives from the NSW Police Force, the Office of Emergency Management and Hawkesbury Rural Fire Service will be on hand to listen to our community members and their current circumstances.
