Media Statement - Morale boost for Esperance community

9/12/2015

Federal Member for O’Connor Rick Wilson MP has thanked Prime Minister the Hon Malcolm Turnbull for taking the time to visit the Esperance community in the aftermath of the fires. 
“It was a real morale boost for the community to have Prime Minister Turnbull visit and provide hope in tragic circumstances,” he said.
“I welcome the Prime Minister’s suggestion that Mobile Blackspot Programme funding could be used to improve the battery life of phone towers in fire-prone areas.
“In the event of an emergency, it is important to have adequate mobile phone communication.”
