Why is Disaster Resilience so Important

As Australians have felt the impacts of extreme weather and a global pandemic, this year more than ever has highlighted the need for government teams, departments and agencies to support disaster resilience in the communities which they serve.

That means that disaster resilience should be a key priority for all levels of government so that it can help people face challenges on the ground.

If you are a leader within a Federal, State/Territory or Local government or an emergency service organisation, what are you doing to ensure that your team, department or organisation is a thought leader when it comes to understanding, planning for and implementing disaster resilience?


What constitutes a disaster resilient organisation?

In order for any organisation to be disaster resilient, you need to know the risks in order to prepare for a disaster.

That means time and effort must be invested in understanding, planning and implementing plans relating to the organisation’s disaster preparedness, recovery and post-disaster recovery. Attention must also be given to how disaster communications are implemented.
