FLOOD AWARENESS WEEK

1 February 2002

National Party Member for Lismore, Thomas George today supported the initiative of Flood Awareness Week for the Lismore City from 4-8 February.

"Living on the North Coast floods are a very real occurrence. As the February 2001 flood showed many people were unaware and required more information about the situation," Mr George said.

"I congratulate Lismore City Council on this initiative, together with the State Emergency Service, Lismore Unlimited, Kirklands and Country Energy for sponsoring this event."

"I encourage residents and business owners in the Lismore area to use this week to gather the relevant information needed to effectively plan for floods," Mr George concluded.
