On 23 February at Qudos Bank Arena, the Premier Gladys Berejiklian and NSW Rural Fire Service Commissioner Shane Fitzsimmons will host a State Memorial for those impacted by the bushfires.
The event will give members of the public from across NSW an opportunity to come together to recognise the lives lost, the sacrifices made and to think of those directly impacted by the fires.
Ms Berejiklian said, “It is important for us to acknowledge the ultimate sacrifices made and to move forward together on a path to healing and rebuilding”.
Commissioner Fitzsimmons said the service will pay special tribute to those firefighters and emergency services personnel who lost their lives and, “While we have seen tragedy, we have also seen the best of the community, working together to help each other when it matters most”.
Further details about the memorial and how to attend will be available shortly.
