Written on the 16 June 2015 by Kevin Conolly
Kevin Conolly MP, Member for Riverstone is calling on local individuals, schools, communities and businesses to apply for the 2015 Resilient Australia Awards and NSW Get Ready Community Awards to recognize those who contribute significantly to preparation for or recovery from disasters.
The awards, which opened on Monday 15 June, is a great way to acknowledge the great work community groups, individuals, not-for-profits, volunteers and schools do in the Riverstone electorate to strengthen community resilience.
This year, the NSW Government has introduced the Get Ready Community Award to recognise a local group which has helped their community prepare or recover from a natural disaster.
"The awards are about recognising the innovative practices and achievements that not only make our communities safer but also resilient enough to handle any emergency situation," he said.
The Resilient Australia Awards provide an opportunity to showcase the outstanding work being done across NSW to strengthen communities after natural disasters. The winners of the NSW event will be finalists in the national awards.
Entries for the Resilient Australia Award and the NSW Get Ready Community Award will be accepted until midnight 9 August 2015.
Further information about the awards and how to enter can be found at www.emergency.nsw.gov.au/awards
