Shoalhaven Council - Currowan Bushfire Recovery Action Plan

Shoalhaven Council - Currowan Bushfire Recovery Action Plan

LG Awards Winner Series - Shoalhaven Council - Currowan Bushfire Recovery Action Plan, February 2020

The Shoalhaven City Council's Currowan Bushfire Recovery Action Plan of February 2020 underpinned the significant challenge of facilitating the recovery from a fire that destroyed 82% of the City's 4,600 square kilometre area. The Recovery Committee transferred its recovery task to Council business as usual on 30 June 2020. The Shoalhaven's Recovery Action Plan was the Winner of the 2021 Local Government Awards for Excellence for Disaster Recovery/Emergency Response Management Award (Population greater than 100,000). In this webinar, Shoalhaven's Local Recovery Coordinator, Vince Di Pietro, will provide insights into the thought behind the Plan, the work rhythm of the Recovery Committee and some insights into things that work well and some that may need more careful thought in readiness for the future.

Vince Di Pietro's career began as an officer and aviator in the Royal Australian Navy from 1976 until 2016. Four decades of Naval Service was followed by Chief Executive of Lockheed Martin Australia and New Zealand from 2016 until 2019.

He was invited to defer his retirement in the Shoalhaven to assist as the Local Recovery Coordinator for the Shoalhaven City Council in the wake of the Currowan and Compton Grange bushfires from December 2019 until June 2020. This fire destroyed 82% of the City of Shoalhaven’s 4,600 square kilometres.
