With the long term task of rebuilding our communities, in all areas of our social, human and physical capital. Governments at all levels and all political parties, in bipartisan cooperation, need to positively and strategically plan in rebuilding our Nations future. There are no doubt strategies being enacted currently that will assist with the current situations, and those that may occur in the near furture. However it is the funding of these large scale operations that needs to be clearly articulated, discussed and put in place so that we are prepared to immediately enact, as required, the rebuilding of our communities future.

The past few weeks have seen devastation of the likes that a number of our generations have never experienced. Perhaps only the elders of our communities have memories of similar or worse. We have seen the best of our community in their dealing with the challenges that nature has brought us. There have been many rescuers from many agencies, those dealing with the immediate crisis, SES, Bundaberg Regional Council and our Emergency Services, to those assisting the recovery through co-ordination of accommodation and donation distribution centres, Community Agencies and Charities. All levels of our Government, Local, State and Federal are responding swiftly and appropriately to support those in genuine need.
