    Every risk you identify is enhanced during a disaster!

    Walcha Logo ImageCalling all Walcha Local Government Area Residents - your input is requested.

    Did you know, that 98% of the Walcha Local Government Area (LGA) is Bushfire Prone, which classifies it as a Disaster Risk Area?

    Disasters are becoming more common; managing risks and impacts of the next disaster has never been more critical.

    Walcha has a new Disaster Risk Reduction Coordinator - Kruthika Nagananda. Many of you will have already met her and she is looking forward to working with you to minimise the risk.

    Kruthika is asking that all residents of the Walcha Local Government Area participate in a survey questionnaire that will help to guide Walcha Council on how best to focus our resources to manage risk in our LGA. Now is the time to make your voice count.


    Walcha Council is happy to receive the Disaster Risk Reduction Fund grant from NSW Reconstruction Authority, previously known as Resilience NSW.

    The project outcome is to create Disaster Risk Reduction Action Plan for 2030 via four components; one of which is Improving Communities’ strength to reduce disaster risk.

    Walcha Council is committed to identifying the vulnerability for Walcha is classified into:

    • Old (65+) /differently abled/children
    • People with large and numerous animals
    • Difficult access
    • People with chronic health issues.

    If you identify as vulnerable in one or more of these categories, please reach out to Walcha Council via the survey or a phone call.

    If you have a possible idea for the project, or concerns, reach out to Walcha Council. Your inputs are appreciated.

    In order to fight disasters, we need to be prepared. Walcha Council is looking to support the community, so please let us know your inputs. If you have any concerns, you are welcome to reach out to me individually. It will be wonderful if you could answer the survey.
