Staff secondment group for Go Spend Send initiative

 

City of Canterbury Bankstown are standing by fire-affected communities and offering assistance in the recovery of these areas.

Several CBCity employees have nominated themselves to take part in regional secondments, to lend a helping hand to the RFS and local councils hit hard by the fires.

Over 5,400,000 hectares of land has been burnt in NSW in the last four months, which is the fundamental reason Mayor Khal Asfour says Council is offering their assistance in the form of staff secondments.

"We launched our Go Spend Send initiative last weekend to reach out to the communities who have faced extreme challenges. Supporting staff members on secondments in fire-affected areas is just another way we as a community can offer our resources to aid the recovery," he said.

"I am proud to say that already, six CBCity employees are playing their part in helping affected areas get back on their feet."

Manager of Road Operations, Philip Eapen, who assisted the RFS with recovery operations said it is important to use the vast array of skillsets we have within Local Government, to assist people in need, in whichever way we can.

"It is an amazing opportunity to work with true professionals, dedicated to their work, in an environment you can challenge yourself in," he said.

Community Engagement Officer, Matthew Salamone, also offered his time and skills at Tenterfield Council, where areas faced 72 days without clean water throughout the bushfire season.

"Helping other councils in times of need helps builds stronger relationships that can be leaned on if needed when the next disaster hits," he said.
