Council coordinates the
Canterbury-Bankstown Community Safety Expo every year. The Expo aims to increase community awareness about safety issues, provide a forum for residents to meet local emergency services, and learn how to be safer in your own home and community.
The 2019 Canterbury-Bankstown Community Safety Expo was held on Saturday 12 October 2019 from 9am to 5pm at Bankstown Central.
This year, Fire & Rescue NSW, NSW Ambulance and NSW Police Force conducted a live motor vehicle accident scenario on Lady Cutler Avenue on the day. The scenario gave an insight into the coordination to safely rescue passengers from a vehicle, following an accident.
The event also involved a live CPR demonstration, safety presentations, bandage demonstrations throughout the day, beach and water safety information, performances from local groups, martial arts demonstrations, kids face painting, competitions, giveaways and prizes, and many more. Information resources were also available at and provided by various stallholders on the day.
There was plenty of opportunities for residents and visitors to chat with local law enforcement and emergency workers from the NSW Police Force, NSW Ambulance, Fire + Rescue NSW, State Emergency Service, St John Ambulance, City of Canterbury-Bankstown, and many more, at the various stalls located at Centre Court and on Lady Cutler Avenue.
