Emergency services and Shoalhaven City Council will host three city-wide 'Recovery into Readiness' community meetings (webinars).
The one-hour interactive webinars can be viewed live on Wednesday, August 26 at 1pm, 4pm, and 7pm. The webinars will also be recorded and published on the council's website.
The virtual community meetings will host a panel of presenters to address matters of importance based on the NSW Government 'Get Ready' campaign and to answer questions about emergency and bushfire readiness.
Local Emergency Officers will focus on aspects of community order, response to warnings, and evacuation. The RFS will address community preparedness including preparing property, important items such as transistor radios, torches and recommended media Apps to download.
Shoalhaven City Council Mayor, Amanda Findley said, "In support of the NSW Government Get Ready Campaign these virtual community meetings and panel are mindful that many of our community have heightened sensitivity to this subject, with many residents still in recovery from our most recent fire season."
"The live webinars are an opportunity for residents and ratepayers to proactively prepare themselves and their families for the next emergency or fire season. Council also updates emergency planning information on Shoalhaven City Council's website year-round, to ensure community access to the latest information."
