The program was delivered during one of the most severe storm seasons NSW has seen for many years. This meant that NSW SES stakeholders were operational and responding to emergencies significantly more than expected. This made liaison with the business very challenging.
SSKO was recognised with the 2021 SafeWork Award for excellence in work health and safety. The Stay Safe Keep Operational (SSKO) Program developed the new Mobile Incident Command Centre (MICC) and Cell on Wheels Generation 2(COW) to address these challenges and to ensure the safety of NSW volunteers, our emergency service partners and the communities we serve. The launch of the COW project was personally visited by the NSW Premiere.
