Safety after heavy rainfall

  • Never drive, ride or walk through flood waters.

  • In adverse weather, always drive to the conditions.
  • For emergency help during a storm or flood, phone the State Emergency Service (SES) on 132 500.

Eurobodalla Bush Fire Risk Management

The Eurobodalla is fortunate to be surrounded by natural bushland. Living in and around such natural beauty requires Council and the community to be aware of the risks associated with bush fires to lessen the threat to life and property.

Under the Rural Fires Act 1997, all land management agencies are required to implement procedures to minimise this threat. Accordingly, we have developed a Bush Fire Risk Management Policy:

Shark sightings

To report a shark sighting or attack please phone the local NSW Police on 02 4472 0099.
