The tool will be applied beyond the livestock industry for use more broadly in the agricultural and logistics sectors.

HELPING COMMUNITIES RECOVER AFTER NATURAL DISASTERS
BlazeAid is a volunteer-based organisation that works with families and individuals in rural Australia after natural disasters. Working alongside the rural families, our volunteers help with general repairs and maintenance. Equally important, volunteers also help to lift the spirits of people who are facing years of drought, or devastating losses. BlazeAid volunteers work in a disaster-affected area for many months, not only helping individuals and families, but also helping rebuild the local communities.
BlazeAid is in Hughenden to assist people in the Flinders Shire starting from 11th May 2015. Information can be obtained from the BlazeAid web site, Facebook page or email address - firstname.lastname@example.org. Please contact Barry Thompson Co-coordinator for Blazeaid on 0437 397 665 for more information or call in to the CWA Unit, Stansfield Street Hughenden to register for assistance.
