Community invited to celebrate safer communities project

Friday, 28 September 2018 

The City of Bunbury is gearing up to launch its brand new Safer Community Network and the whole community is invited to celebrate this momentous occasion.

The Safer Community Network is an all hazards approach to community safety and emergency management.

The aim of the network is to empower the whole of community to be resilient to emergency events, through social connection and recognition of the value of a shared responsibility approach.

The Safer Community Network offers the opportunity to become part of a network of people who know what to do, when to do it and where to go for help when things go wrong.

Becoming part of the network will allow members to receive information and opportunities based on the needs of their community, strengthen neighbourhood connections, give feedback and keep the lines of communication open.

The program will launch on Friday 5 October at Market Place, Hudson Road, Bunbury (outside of IGA).

The City of Bunbury will be teaming up with the Child and Parenting Centre who will be providing free activities for the kids with a superhero theme.

City of Bunbury, police and DFES officers will be on site for a chat so community members can find out more about this exciting new project. 

The first 60 people will receive a free cupcake upon arrival. There will also be a fire truck, giveaways and more.
