North East  Victoria Response

The Emergency Fencing Project is part of the Mission of the Benalla Uniting Church Congregation. It is supported by the people of the church with prayer and resources.

It is caring and supportive of the landholder during a time of emergency such as fire or flood.  It is emergency work and therefore does not compete with local contractors. It completes the process of fencing using the labour of volunteers.

The team has been in operation for many years commencing with the Black Saturday fires. It is very experienced having conducted fencing reconstruction at Strath Creek, Wandong, King Lake, Buxton, Boho and Boweya.
