Bellingen Shire Council has authorised this Committee (DERC) to be responsible for the operation of an Evacuation Centre for any Emergency/disaster event which affects the Dorrigo Plateau Community.
DERC will establish the Evacuation Centre under the control of the Department of Family and Community Services –Disaster Welfare Staff once a State Of Emergency (Section 44) has been declared by the Rural Fire Services Commissioner.
The Evacuation Centre will be at the Dorrigo Recreation & Sporting Grounds Hall.
DERC may also establish an Assembly Area/Safe Place pending the declaration above if warranted by the situation.
Members of the Dorrigo Community who wish to nominate as Volunteers to support the Evacuation Centre
are invited to register at the Dorrigo Information Centre on the forms located there. An online registration is being developed.
