Hazard workshop hits town

Next month the Demo Club will host the Farming and Small Business Natural Hazards Workshop in Broken Hill.

With natural disasters becoming more frequent and the financial impacts on farming and small business more severe, Rural Financial Counselling Service (RFCS) NSW is offering this free interactive workshop for residents of Broken Hill and nearby communities.

The Disaster Risk Reduction Fund (DRRF) is jointly funded by the Australian and NSW governments, with this RFCS workshop aiming to help attendees to:

  • understand risks associated with your local natural hazards.
  • learn the risk management process.
  • utilise risk management tools.
  • understand the importance of incorporating risk management into business planning.

RFCS says the workshop will provide attendees with:

  • knowledge to identify and evaluate your risks.
  • skills to develop your business risk action plan.
  • access to support to integrate risk management into your business planning.

The workshops will be delivered by experienced agricultural and risk management consultant, PhD David Brown. In addition to his extensive experience in leading community-based workshops, Dr Brown also lectures in agribusiness management at Charles Sturt University.

The RFCS workshop will run from 7:45am to 12pm on Monday November 13 at The Demo Club at 218 Argent St.

RFCS invite other services to attend the workshop to share their information and knowledge with attendees over a light lunch.
