Conflict in the Middle East
Due to the ongoing conflict between Israel and Hamas and the resulting impact on our community, we have developed an incident response plan to mitigate any threats that may arise across our memorial parks.
While we do not anticipate any immediate threats, we understand the ongoing conflict is upsetting for all parties involved, and our utmost priority is to ensure the safety of our stakeholders, visitors and employees.
We have been informed that the NSW Police Force have established a centralised command centre to assess potential threats and engage with relevant stakeholders. While the police do not possess any intelligence indicating likely threats, it is evident they are taking proactive measures to consider potential scenarios.
During this time, we ask that our stakeholders remain vigilant regarding any threat that is identified within our memorial parks. There is significant representation of both Jewish and Muslim community at some of our memorial parks.
If you identify any threats while visiting one of our parks, please report this to a member of staff who will escalate to management.
