The Muster is a two-day activity comprising a community planning event (24 June from 9am to 4pm) and two preparedness activities (24 & 25 June from 9am to 5pm).

Why join the Community Planning event?

Have you been thinking about what you could do to better prepare for future bushfires? Do you have an idea or a nugget of knowledge that could benefit the community? If you answered yes to these questions, then this event is for you.

The Community Planning event will bring together Wooroloo and Gidgigannup community members to create new connections and an understanding of what will support you and your community in becoming more resilient in the face of future fires.

The outcome is for your community to undertake activities that will prepare you for fire on an ongoing basis into the future with the help of the Australian Resilience Corps, volunteers and our partners.

What to expect

The community event includes:

  • An introduction to the Australian Resilience Corps
  • Unpacking the Resilient Communities Framework (an evidence-based guide to community planning) and how it can help Wooroloo and Gidgigannup residents
  • Community discussion to identify strengths and weaknesses
  • Identify preparedness activities that volunteers can support in the short-, mid- and long-term in Wooroloo and Gidgigannup

Food and beverage will be provided on both days.

Comfortable clothing and a willingness to engage with your fellow community members.

We look forward to seeing you and other community members at the Community Planning event. Places are limited, register now.
