Corinda Medical Centre has seen a rush of people in today with flood-related infections - please be cautious to wear the right protective gear, get your tetanus up to date and treat any nicks or cuts seriously
Corinda Medical Centre open again but has NO tetanus supplies until tomorrow. They are accepting flood injuries and infections without appointment, for other appointments call 3379 1303. Open 7.30am-6pm and Saturday mornings
Small businesses and Primary producers who have suffered damage as a direct result of the recent floods (Nov-Dec 2010 and Jan 11) may be eligible for a government assistance grant of up to $25,000
We understand (unconfirmed) that Energex is busy diverting circuits around Corinda in order to allow power to be delivered to floor affected homes near Deniven Street.
The plan is to provide a dual powerpoint independent of the normal house supply to each house near the existing power board.
Hopefully similar solutions will be deployed elsewhere to minimise the lack of power and assist recovery efforts.
Deniven Street and Rinora Streets still need work in Corinda.
We are expecting the army to BCC to be back again tomorrow. If you are available, these are priority areas to assist.
