Emergency Response Plan

Consultation has concluded. Council sought community feedback and views to help review the Emergency Plan 2012-2016 and develop a new Plan for 2016-2020. The Emergency Plan is under review and a draft version will be presented for public consultation in 2016.

Project Background

Planning for natural disasters and large scale emergencies has taken a high priority on the national agenda in recent years. Hazards such as earthquake, extreme heat, fire, floods, extreme storm and a terrorism incident may have a potentially devastating impact upon city life.

Council’s emergency plan aims to reduce the impact by clarifying Council’s role, and the role of State Government and the broader community in:
  • Preparation before an emergency event
  • Response during an emergency event
  • Recovery after an emergency event.

Emergencies may not be something we think about every day, but they can strike at any time, and disrupt lives in many different ways. By taking time to think about and plan for emergencies you can help your household to be prepared. This booklet includes four easy steps to build your household Emergency Plan. http://www.redcross.org.au/files/REDiPlan_booklet.pdf
