The City of Greater Dandenong has joined with three neighbouring councils to highlight the importance of community safety.
Together with Kingston Council, Frankston Council and Mornington Peninsula Shire, Greater Dandenong has launched the Operation Emergency Ready campaign to educate the community and ensure they are emergency ready.
Greater Dandenong Mayor Councillor Roz Blades said councils worked in partnership with emergency service providers to keep their local communities safe. She said that 26 per cent of the people living within the four council areas only arrived in Australia in the past 10 years, so education and awareness was paramount. “Everybody can play a role in being emergency ready, and we want to help all members of our community to be prepared,” Cr Blades said.
