Since February 2022, fifteen southern Yorke Peninsula community members have been participating in a series of emergency resilience workshops, facilitated by the Australian Red Cross.
Utilising a whole-of-community approach, attendees represented several corners of the community, including SES/CFS, progress association, sporting clubs, farmers, gardening club, Probus and more.
Workshops guided participants through activities which highlighted the strengths, assets, vulnerabilities and weaknesses of Warooka and Marion Bay disaster resilience.
These activities allowed members to brainstorm, prioritise and plan a unique Resilience Action Plan for Warooka and Marion Bay.
A working group has now been formed with nine community members at its heart.
Meetings will be held in February, July and November on the 4th Thursday of the month. Reach out to Ken Newman to express interest in attending: firstname.lastname@example.org
The group is working alongside the Warooka Progress Association and Warooka SES to keep resilience progress in the forefront and are always happy to have new members and new ideas.
With five prioritised action plans, and a myriad of further valuable ideas, the Warooka/Marion Bay Resilience Group are well on their way to achieving their resilience goals!
Importantly, they are open to new members joining at any stage, regardless of your skillset or background and any wider support community members are able to provide.
The Resilience Group meets at Warooka SES once a month and all are welcome to attend.
