With extreme weather becoming more frequent and severe, Shoalhaven residents can attend a free EmergencyRedi Workshop offered by NRMA Insurance and Australian Red Cross to learn about local weather risks and how to prepare for an emergency. 

Sarah Rarity from NRMA Insurance Nowra and Vincentia said, “Research shows only half of Australians have taken steps to prepare for extreme weather over the past year and many don’t feel prepared to respond should an extreme weather event occur.”

Workshop participants will learn about their risks and be equipped with the knowledge and tools to prepare for future emergencies.

All attendees will build their own emergency RediPlan which includes key contacts, meeting places, animal plans, key documents, special items, medical information and stress management plans, all vital information in one emergency plan.

“Through these workshops we want to help Shoalhaven residents better understand their local risks and provide the information and tools to get prepared.

“Taking steps to prepare before an event happens goes a long way in protecting yourself, your loved ones, your community and the things you care about,” Ms Rarity said.

The workshop is being held at The Country Club Vincentia, 49 Murray Street on Wednesday 31 January, 6 p.m.
