Stevens Group lends a helping hand to the first responders of the recent Hunter Valley Bus accident.
October 12, 2023
In July 2023, the Fire and Rescue NSW Peer Support and Wellbeing Group were looking for a suitable location to hold a group peer support/debrief for Fire and Rescue, Ambulance and Police after the recent Hunter Valley Bus accident. With the Stevens Group’s new bar venue NINETEEN located in the Hunter Valley, John Stevens CEO had no hesitation is making the venue available for the amazing first responders. With over 100 responders attending the day on 26th July 2023, the event was not only a success but an essential one.
“It is imperative that we support our incredible Emergency Services wherever possible and after this tragic accident, anything we could do to assist was our privilege. Offering our venue NINETEEN in the Hunter Valley for them to meet and debrief is the least we could do” said John Stevens CEO, Stevens Group.
Station Officer Dirk Ziekenheiner from Fire and Rescue NSW, Metropolitan North 2, called into the Stevens Group Head Office to present John Stevens and Bar NINETEEN with a certificate of appreciation, and a plaque to take pride of place in the bar at NINETEEN in the Hunter Valley.
