I am currently the Planning Officer at Campbelltown Unit. With the release of the Campbelltown Flood Study there is now much work to do to complete the Local Flood Plan and engage with the community about their flood risks.
I joined originally to help my neighbours but as my experience has grown I know there is much more I now can contribute to the safety of my community.
Working with the NSW SES team, people from other agencies and engaging with the community to ensure they are prepared.
During my time I with NSW SES have completed many training courses as well as my Advanced Diploma in Emergency Management.
I have also participated in various roles which include:
This is an opportunity not to be missed.
Not only will you feel great satisfaction by working in your community but self satisfaction as you develop skills you never imagined you would be able to do.
Congratulations to John who received a Life Membership Award for his dedication over the last 43 years volunteering with the NSW SES Campbelltown Unit.
Thinking about becoming a member like John but not sure what you'd like to do?
