Bushfire Emergency Relief Centre Open

Posted on 3 January 2020

Type: Announcement


Latrobe City Council has been providing practical support to assist East Gippsland Shire during the bushfire emergency.

This support has been escalated with the opening of an Emergency Relief Centre at Morwell Recreation Reserve, Travers Street Morwell.


Latrobe City Council has been working to help those who have left their homes and have no-where else to go, by setting up the Emergency Relief Centre and providing immediate support.

The Emergency Relief Centre is available for those people who have left East Gippsland and has ample parking for long vehicles. We encourage those with caravans, motorhomes and the like to first check local caravan parks for vacancies.

At this stage the centre is not open to residents of Latrobe City due to there being no active emergency situation in the municipality.
