Fire Recovery Unit Reports and Newsletters

You can find reports prepared by the Fire Recovery Unit in the Resources section of this website.

The final edition of the FRU newsletter was published in August 2013 and featured additional information to ensure that community members can continue to stay in touch with the latest recovery news from local council, service providers and community organisations.

Archives of the FRU Newsletter can be accessed in Resources.


This website is updated with information that is relevant to people affected by the 2009 bushfires so it is recommended that you check this site periodically for updates.
