Find out more about the NSW winning and highly commended entries in the
2017 Resilient Australia Awards and
Get Ready Award.
Resilient Australia Awards is a national program that recognises and promotes initiatives that strengthen community disaster resilience across the nation. By celebrating innovation and exemplary practice, the awards showcase work that is often unseen, motivating others to think about how they can be better prepared and more disaster resilient. The awards program started in 2000, and has a solid history in Australia's emergency management sector. The awards are open to everyone including individuals, not for profit organisations, small and large businesses, local and state government, schools, education institutions, research bodies and emergency service agencies.
NSW Get Ready Community Award is open to local community groups and organisations. Established in 2015, the award recognises the work of a local community that has taken action to strengthen their resilience to disasters. The winning community will receive a trophy from the NSW Government and their achievements will feature on NSW Government websites.
