As part of its year round effort to promote community safety, Bankstown City Council will be staging a Safety Expo on Saturday (6 October 9am-5pm) in Centre Court in Centro Bankstown.
Mayor Khal Asfour said the expo is an opportunity for residents to pick up safety tips.
“These tips could help save lives and prevent needless tragedies in our community,” Mayor Asfour said.
“Displays and demonstrations will be a feature of the day, so the event will not only be informative, but interesting and enjoyable as well.
“So I urge all Bankstown residents to visit the expo, even if it’s only for a short time.”
Demonstrations will include:
Council’s partners will also have displays on the day. They include:
Throughout the year, Council has been involved in a number of community safety initiatives such as the It's Time to Talk domestic violence awareness campaign, White Ribbon Day, NSW Graffiti Hotspot program, SABRE (Smoke Alarm Battery Replacement for the Elderly), Midnight Basketball and the U-Turns for Youth motor vehicle theft prevention initiative.
