Emergency services teams will battle it out in the name of a good cause during the Triple Zero Challenge this month. Wingecarribee Shire Council’s emergency management officer Amanda Lawrence described the challenge as a continuous cricket match between triple zero emergency service agencies. “The day provides a unique opportunity for families to meet with their local emergency service workers in a fun and relaxed environment,” she said.
Keen cricketers from the NSW Police Force, NSW Fire and Rescue, NSW Rural Fire Service and NSW State Emergency Service will battle it out in the name of charity.
“This year we’re delighted to support the Southern Highlands Suicide Prevention Program,” Ms Lawrence said. “The program relies upon grants, donations and volunteer assistance to raise awareness of suicide prevention in our community.”
The challenge will take place at Bradman Oval in Bowral between 10am and 4pm on Sunday, October 21.
