Creating safer Cardinia – free workshops

Cardinia Shire Council is hosting free online community workshops to mark Community Safety Month in October.

Community members are encouraged to jump online and take part in community safety and emergency preparedness workshops kicking off on 6 October.

The online workshops will take place every Wednesday and Thursday evening from 7.30pm to 8.30pm.

The topics will include home, property and personal safety awareness, residential emergency planning, online safety awareness, bushfire preparedness, family violence awareness, farming and agriculture emergency planning, alcohol and drug use and Cardinia Shire community-led emergency management groups.

Cardinia Shire Mayor Brett Owen is encouraging all residents to take part in the online workshops to help make a “Safer Cardinia”.

“Community safety is a leading priority for Council. We’re committed to working in partnership with other agencies and organisations however this requires a whole-of-community response,” Cr Owen said.

“This is a great opportunity for our community to come together and learn about community safety and emergency preparedness.”
