Building the Resilient Community Summit

St John (NSW) is hosting a Summit in Sydney on 17 and 18 May, 2012, on the theme of Building Resilient Community, a forum on how the wider community can contribute to better outcomes in emergencies, through working together and significantly supporting the emergency services.

 There are range of high profile speakers including:

 The purpose of this Summit is to give participants an understanding of how individuals, workplaces, event organisers and communities can plan and work together to increase capability to survive a disaster or emergency.  A long-term goal of St John is to build a resilient community by having at least one person in every household trained in first aid.
