“We are working as quickly as we can to allow people to have access back to their homes, but we must make sure the area is safe before we allow people to return into the area, that is our primary concern”

                                                         DFES Commissioner Wayne Gregson

Insurers have declared the Hills area a ‘Catastrophe Zone’ and have committed to escalate and prioritise claims.

Residents can call the Insurance Council’s disaster hotline on 1800 734 621.

A community meeting is scheduled for 10:00am Tuesday at Brown Park, Swan View.
