Small Business and Tourism Disaster Resilience Forum

In conjunction with Cooroy Chamber of Commerce and Pomona and District Chamber of Commerce, Noosa Council is hosting a free Small Business and Tourism Disaster Resilience Forum, funded by the Department of Tourism and Sport.
Held at Cooroy Hotel on Thursday, 13 June from 5.30 for refreshments and 6-7.30pm, the forum will run through key steps to help hinterland businesses get back operating sooner following a crisis and how to become more resilient for future events.

More details on the forum, and information on how to register, can be found here.

Don't wait for a disaster to happen before you think about how you and your family are going to survive. Noosa Council's Emergency Action Guide will help you plan for an emergency.
