Victorian Central Highlands Storm Recovery Operation
In 2021, a severe storm event in Victoria’s Central Highlands caused thousands of trees to fall on properties throughout the area. Numerous private properties remain strewn with fallen trees, which began to dry and become hazardous.
The Victorian State Government via the Emergency Recovery Victoria (ERV) provided funding to three councils, Hepburn Shire Council, Macedon Ranges Shire Council and Moorabool Shire Council to manage the clean-up program. This program was undertaken by DRA volunteers.
