New experience and new territories for RFDS

New experience and new territories for RFDS

News from RFDS 13 October 2021

n addition to the work the Royal Flying Doctor Service has been doing to provide vaccinations for our normal territory in regional and remote NSW, the pandemic has seen us head to a host of new locations to provide assistance.

It started with additional clinics across the Far West at the request of the Federal Government but has expanded since then to include the New England, Upper Hunter and even South Coast regions. 

While our regular clinics are based out of Broken Hill, these additional clinics have been organised from our Dubbo base. What started with small teams who flew and drove from Dubbo in early August to places like Walgett, Lightning Ridge and Grawin, it quickly expanded, requiring more staff and more vaccine.

NARRABRI? NARRABYE: FIRST-EVER PLAN FOR A GAS-FREE NSW UNVEILED

NARRABRI? NARRABYE: FIRST-EVER PLAN FOR A GAS-FREE NSW UNVEILED

Climate Council

EXACTLY ONE YEAR since Santos’ polluting and expensive Narrabri Gas Project was approved, a new report has found the gas this project would produce isn’t needed.

The report by energy analysts Northmore Gordon, which was commissioned by the Climate Council, reveals that New South Wales could reduce its annual gas demand by the same amount that the Narrabri Gas Project is forecast to produce, as soon as 2030.

“This report effectively renders the Narrabri Gas Project redundant. We already know that this project will drive up greenhouse gas emissions, worsen climate change and do nothing to reduce power prices. Now we also know the project is completely unnecessary when it comes to meeting the state’s energy needs,” said Climate Council Senior Researcher, Tim Baxter. 

“To ensure the New South Wales Government is capable of reaching its newly announced target to halve emissions by 2030 – it needs a plan to reduce gas use across the state. This new report shows them how to do it,” said Baxter.

“This is the first-ever plan that spells out how we can wean Australia’s most populous state off polluting and expensive gas using common-sense measures. This is a pathway to healthier, more affordable, and more efficient gas-free homes and businesses,” he said. 

Report Key Findings: 

  • Gas demand within New South Wales could be 70 percent lower as soon as 2030, and ​​eliminated altogether as soon as 2050, using readily available, commercially viable technologies.
  • With the right policies in place to support technologies like electric resistance heating and renewable hydrogen, gas use can be reduced in emissions-intensive industries like iron and steel manufacturing. 
  • Homes and commercial buildings are responsible for almost half of New South Wales’ gas use and meeting their needs with electricity is readily achievable with existing, commercially available technologies. 
  • Putting common-sense measures in place to reduce gas demand in New South Wales, such as electrifying homes and upgrading commercial buildings, would make the expensive and polluting Narrabri Gas Project redundant.
  • There is no shortage of gas anywhere in Australia with the growing demands of a swollen gas export industry driving supply issues, higher energy bills, and worsening climate change.
  • It is critically important for our economy, health, and climate that every state and territory transitions away from fossil fuels like gas as quickly as possible.

STATE WIDE ‘STAY AT HOME’ A MESSAGE FROM ROY BUTLER, MEMBER FOR BARWON

STATE WIDE ‘STAY AT HOME’ A MESSAGE FROM ROY BUTLER, MEMBER FOR BARWON

Author: Kate Schwager/Monday, August 16, 2021/Categories: Other News, State and National News, Rural News, Politics

Over the weekend I caught an interview with one of our small business owners in Barwon, she said words to the effect of ‘if we survived the worst drought on record, huge dust storms, and a mice plague what’s a little lockdown?’
I know we’ve been battered over the last few years, and we were just starting to come through it all – farming was back, people had a bit of money to spend in town, and our grass was getting greener – this COVID outbreak has come at a time when times were getting better.
If the last few years have taught me anything about our communities it’s that we have an enormous ability to band together and pull through what’s thrown at us. I know our stores of resilience are looking a bit depleted but I have faith in all of us to do the right thing and get back to normal as soon as possible.
I know no one wanted to see COVID in our communities. We have all done so much to prevent this virus from coming out west, that’s what aides my confidence that we can nip this in the bud. It would be easy for us to start casting blame on individuals, and build frustration at those we perceive as doing the wrong thing. I ask that you remember you are only responsible for your own actions – focus on doing the right thing for yourself and your family – staying at home, wearing a mask if you need to go out, and checking in wherever you go. These things will keep you safe.
I have supported the move to lockdown our communities because our health services simply won’t cope with a high number of cases. This is a message I have been delivering to the government since COVID first arrived in Australia. It’s for this reason the government is so concerned about what’s happening in our communities. I’m regularly in contact with the Health Minister and Dr Chant, so be assured they understand the concerns you have expressed to me. I still want to see greater transparency on health advice and decisions, but with a need to act quickly based on what I do know and have been told - I have supported their decisions so far.
I would like to give a shout out to every Health employee across Barwon, you have all done fantastic work under trying times to get testing sites set up, to coordinate vaccine clinics, all on top of keeping our local health facilities running – this monumental effort by all of you has not gone unnoticed – thank you.
Our local Police have the difficult job of enforcing the lockdown restrictions, please remember they too are experiencing the frustration of having weddings, birthdays and catch-ups cancelled. When questioned by them please remember, they’re doing their jobs in very trying times.
Please abide by the new conditions, and remember the overall objective is to limit movement and interaction. Don’t try and find loopholes.
We are at a critical stage, we have all witnessed the rapid rise in numbers at Dubbo over the last week. This just shows how quickly this Delta strain of this virus can spread. For those who think this is not a serious illness, please reconsider.
Come forward and get tested if you display even the slightest flu-like symptoms.
COVID is in our communities and on the doorstep of others – we must collectively all play our part to keep ourselves, our families and our communities safe.
Vaccines are increasingly available, please make time to look at the eligibility checker and appointments options near you. My team and I understand people’s frustration at having vaccine appointments cancelled while continually being asked to get a vaccination. We are doing all we can to get more vaccine pop-up clinics in our communities.
It is a stressful time for a lot of people at the moment and the social, economic and psychological effects of this virus and lockdown on people is not lost on me.
There is understandably a lot of information circulating in the community right now, please only rely on information from official sources.
If you require any assistance whatsoever, or some advice on the interpretation of orders please do not hesitate to either contact Service NSW on 13 77 88 or my offices on Narrabri 02 6792 1422, Cobar 02 6836 3722, Broken Hill 08 8087 3315 or email barwon@parliament.nsw.gov.au
