Community members are invited to attend and participate in their closest community forum as part of the review by the Inspector-General of Emergency Management (IGEM) into the South East Queensland (SEQ) rainfall and flooding event that occurred between 22 February and 7 March 2022.

IGEM’s Alistair Dawson said community forums would be held in parts of South East Queensland that were impacted by this rainfall and flooding event.

“These forums are an important opportunity for community members to share their experiences in the lead up to, and in response to the event. The forums provide an opportunity for the community to contribute suggestions for any improvements and equally to share what worked well,” Mr Dawson said.
