GOTAFE gets Emergency Safe

Published 15/09/2015

Students from the GOTAFE campus in Shepparton have a greater understanding on how to be FloodSafe and StormSafe thanks to a recent Victoria State Emergency Service (VICSES) presentation.

North East Region Community Resilience Co-ordinators, Sue Sheldrick and Charlie Sexton teamed with Region Support member Pauline Venn, to deliver flood and storm safety messages to a group of multicultural students.

The twenty students ranging in ages from 20 to 40+, had migrated from various countries including, Afghanistan, Sudan, India, Albania, Vietnam, Japan, Turkey, China and The Congo.

Prior to the visit the students had no inclination as to what role VICSES performed within their community. Visual aids and demonstrations of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) were used to enhance the presentation and the group interacted very positively with the students asking many questions.

A similar presentation was also delivered to a group of students at the Cobram Community House earlier this week.
