Coates sets up emergency camps in COVID-stricken Wilcannia

In early September, Event Awards Major Partner, Coates, played a key role in helping the RFS establish two emergency response camps in Wilcannia, a far western NSW town whose 60% Indigenous population has been hard-hit by COVID-19.

In just 72 hours, the Coates team built two powered camps with supporting infrastructure: an RFS base camp for frontline staff from various agencies and a NSW Health camp for members of the community to safely isolate.

Coates delivered power, lighting and AC; storage, sanitation and shower solutions; temporary site accommodation and toilets; fencing for perimeter site security and traffic management; CCTV services; cool rooms, freezers and so much more.

'Whether it be for fires, floods and now pandemics, we're here 24/7 to provide our services when the RFS call." Jarrad Whitby, Regional Manager at Coates.
