MS TIERNEY (Western Victoria) — My constituency question is directed to the Minister for Emergency Services, Mr Merlino, in the other place. Last Thursday I had the opportunity to visit Carisbrooke and Charlton and to sit down with residents and emergency service members to talk about the impact that the recent floods have had on those communities. We talked about what did and did not happen leading up to the floods and what happened during the critical emergency period of the waters rising. We also talked about damage that has been inflicted on those communities, how we can rebuild and ideas in terms of what can be done to reduce or prevent the impact of future flooding on those communities. My question for the minister is: what are the next steps in terms of assisting communities to ensure the prevention and reduction of damage to those communities as a result of floods?
