The LEAPing into Resilience project is a joint initiative between Mansfield, Strathbogie and Murrindindi Shire Councils, funded by the Australian Government.

The LEAP (Local Emergency Action Plan) project will engage with 15 communities across the three municipalities, to develop a LEAP in each or five communities in each shire

Participating communities within Strathbogie Shire are;

  • Avenel
  • Euroa
  • Nagambie
  • Strathbogie
  • Violet Town

LEAPs are a local community/individual household approach to emergency preparedness and compliments the other levels of emergency planning in Victoria being Municipal, Regional and State levels.

The LEAP project is a collaboration between Council and the various emergency agencies with the community.

Steering groups will be established in each town with Community meetings arranged to receive on the ground community input and suggestions.

If you can’t make it to a community meeting have your say below.

Euroa and Avenel Draft Local Emergency Action Plans (LEAP) have now been released for community feedback.
