Community Recovery Event – Mossman

Tropical Cyclone Jasper made landfall last December and the associated weather event that followed had devastating consequences.
The entire Shire was impacted with major flooding, landslips, overnight evacuations, homes destroyed, damage to water infrastructure, and major roads closed for weeks. On top of this, the closure of the Mossman Mill was announced.

People have lost their homes; many businesses have lost income and employees have lost work. Cane farmers and those whose livelihood relies on the sugar industry face uncertainty.

Against this backdrop, Douglas Shire Council has arranged for disaster recovery specialist, David Younger to visit the region.

David is a natural disaster recovery consultant who has worked first-hand with communities throughout Australia over the last 15 years.

Through a blend of storytelling, scientific findings, and real-life experiences, David will talk about common recovery challenges and provide tips and
pointers to help people recover better.

Where: CWA Hall, 28 Front Street, Mossman
When: Tuesday April 23 – 5pm to 7pm – Dinner 7pm to 8pm (free)
RSVP: For catering purposes, please RSVP by 19 April. Tel: 0418 793 009 or email
