Tips for managing fire anxiety

By Jessica Anstice

Cardinia Shire residents, particularly those who are concerned about the upcoming fire season, are being invited to tune in on an information session.

As the next fire season approaches, community members may face some uncertainty and anxiety created from past events.

For some people, worry, unpredictability and a changed sense of safety are part of the recovery journey.

Cardinia Shire Council is encouraging all residents to join Dr Rob Gordon’s webinar hosted by the Red Cross via Zoom Meetings.

Dr Gordon will be discussing how to understand your experience of disasters may impact your sense of safety and what can be done to prepare for the upcoming summer season

The session will run from 10am to 12pm on Thursday 15 October.
