Member for Mayo Rebekha Sharkie has met with Communications Minister Senator Mitch Fifield to advocate for the adoption of her Private Member’s Bill to ensure 24-hour power backup for mobile phone towers in high bushfire risk areas.

“With the fire danger season starting, the urgency of addressing this critical gap in our communications cannot be underestimated,” Ms Sharkie said.
