Shoalhaven City Council together with Shoalhaven Rural Fire Service are encouraging families, friends and neighbours to use the NSW Rural Fire Service (RFS) Get Ready Weekend on 19-20 September 2020 to prepare for bushfire season and start a broader conversation about being aware of and prepared for all hazards.
“The 2019/20 bushfire season was the most devastating bushfire season in our State’s history. It was a stark reminder of the danger of fire. It was also a reminder of the importance of being prepared and having a plan,” Mayor Findley said.
“As we begin our next fire season, with the previous season’s impacts still being felt across NSW, communities are understandably eager to know more about getting ready.
