Get Ready & Resilience Expo - this Saturday!

April 29, 2024

Gunnedah Shire is making its own preparations for this weekend’s Get Ready & Resilience Expo – a day for our community and businesses to help prepare for future emergencies or disasters.

Gunnedah Shire Council, with the support of the Hunter New England and Central Coast Primary Health Network and sponsorship from Whitehaven Coal and the NSW State Emergency Service – North Western Zone, will host the free Get Ready & Resilience Expo this Saturday, 4 May, 2024.

The event will bring together emergency service organisations, government and nongovernment organisations, Council and local not-for-profit organisations for an Expo at Wolseley Park from 11am to 2pm. There will be plenty for families and organisations to learn and do.

The inspiring guest speakers at the free forum, starting at 5pm in the Gunnedah Town Hall, are retired Detective Senior Constable Allan Sparkes CV, OAM, VA FRSN, and noted Australian actor and philanthropist Samuel Johnson OAM who will talk about resilience.

The Expo will bring people together with all the organisations that not only respond to emergencies and disasters, but help the community prepare and recover from them.
