VTIC provides advice for businesses impacted by the bushfires

VTIC provides advice for businesses impacted by the bushfires
January 4, 2020

Amid the current bushfire crisis impacting eastern Victoria and southern NSW, the Victorian Tourism Industry Council (VTIC) has provided information for businesses impacted by the bushfires.

It advises that emergency assistance payments and other non-financial support is available to people affected by the fires.

With VTIC working with local, state and Federal governments to ensure affected businesses have access to disaster assistance arrangements, it advises that "if your business has been affected by the bushfires please let us know", providing the email: disaster@vtic.com.au

VTIC's advice continues:

Personal well-being
It is normal to feel anxious or physically, mentally and emotionally unwell after a distressing or frightening event.

Support is available to you and your family from Lifeline (131 114), Beyond Blue (1300 224 636 or online chat) or at any of these services.

Victoria
For all incident and relief and recovery information, including information on making an insurance claim, please visit Emergency Victoria.

Landholders needing emergency fodder for livestock should contact the Victorian Farmers Federation (VFF) on 1300 882 833 between 9am and 5pm or email fodder@vff.org.au.

NSW
For all NSW related incident and relief and recovery information, please visit Emergency NSW and Rural Assistance Authority.
