Congratulations to Stacey Tannos ESM, today celebrating 10 years in his position as Commissioner of Marine Rescue NSW. The organisation has gone from strength to strength over the last decade, developing Marine Rescue into a world-class rescue service committed to its mission of saving lives on the water. It has been a pleasure working with him as we deliver 38 new rescue boats, the revolutionising of the marine radio network, the upgrade of bases and the opening of the long needed Lord Howe Island Marine Rescue Unit. #marinerescue

This morning I joined the Treasurer Dom Perrottet MP to announce $268 million second funding package of initiatives which address recommendations from the NSW Bushfire Inquiry and once again put our firefighters and communities first.

Highlights include:
πŸš’ $50.9 million for the continued replacement and refurbishment of our firefighting fleet.
πŸ”₯ $37.6 million for the continued funding of our additional mitigation crews to deliver greater hazard reduction.
πŸ‘¨β€πŸš’ $22.7 million for Fire and Rescue NSW’s personal protective clothing replacement program.
🚨 $5.2 million to buy additional drones to be used for firefighting.

This funding builds on our initial $192 million investment and a suite of legislative amendments which have already made a difference to our state’s preparedness for future disasters, bringing our total response to almost half a billion dollars. #nswrfs #fireandrescue #preparedforanything

….. the best part of my job.

The NSW Police Force has welcomed 192 new probationary constables after they were sworn in at the NSW Police Academy in Goulburn today.

Family and friends were able to watch on as Class 347 attested in a full ceremony that featured the Police Band, Pipe Band, Mounted Unit and VIP cycles.

Class 347 includes 137 men and 55 women who will undertake a year of on-the-job training and complete the Associate Degree in Policing Practice by distance education with Charles Sturt University before being confirmed to the rank of constable.

The newest recruits were congratulated by Minister for Police and Emergency Services David Elliott in Goulburn.
