The NSW Government’s Get Ready Community Award recognises and celebrates the work communities do to prepare for, respond to and recover from disasters.
Following a year of unprecedented disasters in NSW including the black summer fires, flooding and then COVID-19, our communities have shown incredible resilience. Community-led projects that help people prepare for and recover from disasters have never been more important.
