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

    This consultation is now closed and we are incorporating the feedback from the consultation process into the final draft  of the Adelaide City Council Community Emergency Response Plan. It is anticipated this will go to Council in June 2012.

    Following the endorsement of the Community Emergency Response Plan, we will be planning, developing and implementing a community education and awareness raising program that will, in the event of an emergency or diasaster, help to build a resilient community.

  • Background

    by Engage, over 7 years ago

    In the development of the Community Emergency Response Plan, Council undertook technical workshops covering the nine potential hazards for the City of Adelaide. The researched hazards were earthquake, flood, extreme weather, major accidents, infrastructure emergencies, disease pandemic and environmental issues, urban fire and terrorism. It is important to note that in a declared emergency Councils initial role is to support the State Emergency Services, as detailed in the State Emergency Management Plan.

    A field of emergency services and hazard experts participated in the hazard specific workshops over a six month period. The workshops identified existing and proposed actions for Council to improve community resilience before, during and following a disaster.   Specifically, Council determined that targeted community education and awareness programs would greatly assist community emergency preparedness.

    For this reason, Council is seeking your input on how we may best engage with you.
