Peter Harper, CEO of Visual Connections, said: “As we did during last year’s bushfires, and continued to do during the challenges of Covid-19, we are committed to ensuring that businesses industry quick and easy access to assistance from their suppliers when facing natural disasters and other unforeseen circumstances.
The fastest way for business owners to see what support is available is to go to www.visualconnections.org.au and click on the Register for Support tab to download a full membership list. of Visual Connections, with their contact details and an overview of the support. Free.
Harper said: “The sooner you get in touch with suppliers, the better, as many can help assess damage for insurance claims, as well as provide assistance with things like loaning equipment, consumables, repairs and even connections with other companies, so that work in progress can be temporarily outsourced.
“In the meantime, we urge all of our colleagues in the industry to follow emergency service instructions and avoid any risk when accessing their properties or businesses. Assets and equipment can be replaced, but lives cannot. Please stay safe.
