Australian Red Cross – Disaster resilience for those most at risk

Red Cross 01

Are you concerned about the safety and wellbeing of people who might be more vulnerable in a disaster?
Do you have any ideas about how we can support people to be more resilient through emergencies?

The Disaster resilience in at-risk communities project aims to:
• Identify how organisations can work together to support and strengthen disaster resilience with people more at-risk during emergences.
• Capture this information in a framework under the State EmergencyManagement Plan.
• Develop an implementation plan that maps out how we can take the framework into action.
• Identify tools and resources that can support action in different sectors and organisations.

As a peak body who works with or represents those who may be more at risk during an emergency, we are seeking your input through this upcoming peak body workshop. This workshop will provide an opportunity to share experiences, collectively explore the best ways to build resilience with people more at risk during emergencies and provide input into the state-wide framework and implementation plan.
Date: Wednesday 16 August 2017
