Established in 2015, the award recognises the work of local communities that have taken action to strengthen their resilience to disasters. Winning groups have received the trophy for their work developing and implementing initiatives like whole-of-town emergency plans and collaboration with council and emergency services to prepare for future hazards.
The NSW Get Ready Community Award is convened by the Office of Emergency Management and open to local community groups and organisations.
The winning community will receive a trophy from the NSW Government and their achievements will feature on NSW Government websites.
The winners have been announced.
