When a chain of events occur, like weeks of extreme heat, with power failures and bushfire smoke impacting the metro area and storms that bring localised flooding, how would you and your community respond?
This was the premise for AdaptNow!, an initiative of AdaptWest to conduct a townhall style Hypothetical event focused on the cascading impacts of heatwave, bushfire smoke, power outages and flood risk.
Prior to the Hypothetical, there were two community workshops and one business workshop looking at how individuals, communities and businesses respond to extreme weather events. ECF was represented at one of the community workshops.
The Hypothetical was held on Wedneday 27th October at the Woodville Town Hall.
MC Rory McClaren (ABC) and a panel of service providers and community members explored a climate change hypothetical.
The panellists were:
- Liz Connell. Deputy Chief Officer, South Australian State Emergency Service
- Nigel Cooper.Senior Manager – Programs, Asthma Australia
- Cristel Chambers. Community Development Officer, Red Cross
- Catherine McMahon. Hon Exec Officer, Estuary Care Foundation.
- Abby Dickson. Director Corporate Services, City of Port Adelaide Enfield
- Selma Barlow, Economic Development Coordinator Urban Projects, City of Charles Sturt
- Craig Basford, Big Shed Brewing Concern. Co-Founder / Director of consumer business and marketing
