Emergency Management Plan

The economic and social effects of emergencies, including loss of life, destruction of property and dislocation of communities, are inevitable.

Coping with hazards is our reason and focus for planning.  Hazards exist within all communities, whether they are recognised or not.  Experience shows, however, that good planning for the use of resources in preventative (risk management) activities, in the response to emergencies and towards the recovery of affected communities and environments, can significantly lessen the harmful effects of those emergencies.
