Emergency Management Framework for Vulnerable People

The Emergency Management Framework for Vulnerable People is a statewide policy framework to assist in the development and maintenance of emergency management arrangements to consider and prioritise the essential needs of vulnerable people before, during and after an emergency. It also enables service providers to readily identify, locate and communicate with vulnerable people in an emergency.

Emergency Evacuation Framework

Evacuation is a critical risk management strategy that requires thorough and collaborative planning efforts at local, regional and state levels. It is within the evacuation planning process that  effective strategies and useful relationships will be built, which may be called upon during time of emergency.

The guidelines outlined in the Emergency Evacuation Framework align with principles adopted by the Australian Institute of Disaster Resilience and represent an evidence-based approach that can be considered current best practice. The Emergency Evacuation Framework enables emergency planners and committees to plan for community evacuations in a more uniform, collaborative, and robust way.

National Strategy for Disaster Resilience (NDSR)

The NSDR is the first step in a long-term process to deliver the sustained behavioural change and enduring partnerships that are essential to building disaster resilient communities. It is part of a national, coordinated and cooperative effort to enhance Australia’s capacity to withstand and recover from emergencies and disasters.

The NSDR recognises that:

Disasters will happen

Natural disasters are inevitable, unpredictable and significantly impact communities and the economy.

Disaster resilience is your business

Governments, businesses, not-for-profit, communities and individuals all have a role to play and must be prepared.

Connected communities are resilient communities

Connected communities are ready to look after each other in times of crisis when immediate assistance may not be available.

Know your risk

Every Australian should know how to prepare for any natural disaster.

Get ready – then act

Reduce the effects of future disasters by knowing what to do.

Learn from experience

We reduce the effects of future disasters by learning from past experiences.
