After the St Patrick’s Day fires that affected South West Victoria in early 2018, Dr Moreton volunteered her time to assist with community engagement planning with DHHS.  She also worked with the Corangamite Shire Council and various community members, to review and finalise their Community Recovery Plan.  This important plan identifies projects and activities that are designed by locals to renew and revitalise the local economy, build social connections and support those who were most affected by the fires.
