Council introduces digital literacy and safety program for residents

‘Resilient Residents’ seeks to empower the community by providing crucial information about local risks and disasters, and equipping residents with the knowledge to navigate potential challenges.

Throughout the program, residents will gain valuable insights from representatives of the New South Wales State Emergency Service, Fire & Rescue New South Wales, and the New South Wales Rural Fire Service.

Over the course of three weeks, residents will learn about how to access emergency information online, home fire safety visits, bushfire season and its risks, and much more.

“With the help of the emergency services involved, this program aims to arm our residents with the knowledge and resources necessary to create a more connected and resilient community.” Mayor Greiss said.

“With the Resilient Residents program, we’re hoping to help those in our community who need a little assistance in navigating what’s available, how to access it, and most importantly, how to best utilise it.” Dr Greiss said.

Participants will have the opportunity to download and install applications on their personal devices relating to the course content.

From Monday 20 May, the four-week program will be held periodically across the Campbelltown Library network, these libraries include:

  • Glenquarie Library
  • Eagle Vale Library
  • Ingleburn Library
