VCC volunteers respond to Victorian fires

VCC volunteers have supported many towns affected by fires over the last two week. Town including Seaton, Glenmaggie, Snake Valley, Beaufort have been contacted by VCC volunteers providing psychological first aid and general personal support and care.

Almost 100 volunteers nominated to respond to the recent fire events. Those events include the Beaufort, Aberfeldy and Harrietville fires.

VCC had three shifts per day operating out of the Sale Relief Centre, and some volunteers were asked to remain overnight on two occasions. This was all occurring while conducting Outreach activities in Seaton and Glenmaggie.

The Incident Coordination Centre (ICC) was operational during this period.

Further Outreach will be conducted over coming weeks.

Thank you to all volunteers who were requested to respond, both those who actually deployed and those who did not get an opportunity.
