Yorke Peninsula Council is working closely with the State Government to understand the extent of recent storm damage in our region.
Yorke Peninsula farmers are among those who have reported storms impacting on crops and infrastructure.
With that in mind, please read and consider the following:
. Primary producers can access the PIRSA Recovery Hotline by dialing 1800 931 314 and pressing #1
. All primary producers are also invited to participate in a survey to help the State Government understand the impacts of the storms, available at www.pir.sa.gov.au/storms (this closes 11.59pm Monday, 22 November)
. Details about storm damage will help identify the type of recovery support required
. Family and Business mentors are now available in our region to provide free, informal, confidential and independent help – contact details are at www.pir.sa.gov.au/fabs
. PIRSA has been working closely with SA Health and SAPOL so specialist agricultural insurance assessors can enter South Australia
Yorke Peninsula Council and PIRSA are committed to a community-led recovery, which puts the focus on those who have been affected – their needs, and at their pace.
This recovery style is known to be the most effective and will provide opportunities, build future capacity and improve resilience.
PIRSA will continue working with Council to gather information, coordinate on-the-ground assistance and provide advice.
Council and PIRSA are committed to supporting growers to identify their own recovery needs, and empowering them to lead recovery activities.
