MEM­BER for Hin­kler Keith Pitt is en­cour­ag­ing lo­cal res­i­dents to nom­i­nate for the 2016 Re­silient Aus­tralia Awards be­fore June 9.

The awards are a na­tional pro­gram to recog­nise and pro­mote ini­tia­tives that strengthen com­mu­nity dis­as­ter re­silience.

“In Hin­kler, we have wit­nessed first-hand the de­struc­tive im­pact nat­u­ral dis­as­ters can have on res­i­dents and busi­nesses in our com­mu­nity, and recog­nise the im­por­tance of work­ing to­gether to build re­silience,” Mr Pitt said.

“By cel­e­brat­ing in­no­va­tion and best prac­tice, the Re­silient Aus­tralia Awards show­case work that is of­ten un­recog­nised, in­spir­ing oth­ers to think about how they can be more dis­as­ter re­silient.”

The awards are open to all Aus­tralians – in­di­vid­u­als, not-for-profit or­gan­i­sa­tions, small and large busi­nesses, lo­cal and state govern­ments, schools, ed­u­ca­tion in­sti­tu­tions, re­search bod­ies, and emer­gency ser­vice agen­cies.
