Temporary GSAC Evacuation Centre closed

Monday, 14 March 2022

The Emergency Operational Centre has agreed to consolidate the GSAC Evacuation Centre into the larger Southern Cross University Evacuation Centre from today.

Council set up the GSAC Evacuation Centre as a temporary ‘overflow’ centre for our flood-affected community.

The SCU facility, operated by the NSW Department of Community and Justice, is better resourced than GSAC. It will also give evacuees easier access to the nearby Disaster Recovery Centre at SCU to help in their recovery.

The Food Pantry at GSAC will remain open for the time being.

Council would like to thank the many hundreds of volunteers and those who donated to the GSAC Evacuation Centre. We could not have operated it without your generous support.

GSAC will not be returning to normal operations as it will continued to be used to assist in the recovery of Lismore and our community.

We will keep you updated on the role of the facility once it is determined.
