Resilient awards nominations close June
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.
