The Wimmera has endured a number of natural emergencies in recent years, thankfully with a lesser impact than other more hard-hit areas.
The result is a region and individual communities who are prepared to take on any disaster situation. The community spirit shown during emergencies is remarkable, and the Wimmera’s experiences in recent years has certainly helped to build a strong community, and a very strong emergency management system.
In the event of natural disasters, such as bushfires or floods it is important to listen to the local radio stations for advice on what to do, including if you need to evacuate your home.
