Call for applications: Award to recognise community resilience


Georges River Council is calling on local groups and organisations, working on initiatives to help the Georges River community better prepare, respond or recover from a disaster, to apply for the NSW Get Ready Community Award.
Coordinated by Resilience NSW, the NSW Get Ready Community Award will recognise a community that has worked together to make their local area prepared and better able to recover from disasters. Applications are open until 5 July 2020 at
“It has been a year of unprecedented emergencies, from drought to bushfires, storms and floods, to a global pandemic,” Mayor of Georges River Council Kevin Greene said.
“During these trying times, Council has seen first-hand how locals have come together to collaborate and contribute to the creation of a more resilient community.
“There has never been a more important time to celebrate and inspire initiatives that help us better prepare for, respond to and recover from disasters.
“We know there are many shining examples of this important work in our own backyard and that’s why we are encouraging local organisations and groups to apply for this prestigious award.”
All winners will be notified within eight weeks of the application close date and an awards ceremony (dependent on COVID-19) is planned for later this year, in conjunction with the Resilient Australia Awards.
