Community Disaster Recovery for Local Government

CDR

Because Community Disaster Recovery is an extremely sensitive, time critical and complex task, it is important that prior thought and planning is undertaken to prepare your Local Government to guide your community’s recovery after an emergency.

A deep understanding of recovery principles will provide a solid framework to support a resilient community during post-event recovery.

This course will demonstrate recovery group management, pre-event recovery planning processes, the benefit of engaging with your community in preparedness and resilience building activities, and an understanding of the resources available to you. It is a must for Local Governments to confidently understand and undertake the legislative responsibility to best serve their communities.

Emergency Management for Local Government

EMLG

This course explores contemporary emergency management concepts and how these apply to your Local Government, within the West Australian context.

We will explore in detail the principles of preparedness, prevention, response and recovery (PPRR), Local Government responsibilities under the current WA Emergency Management Act (2005) and other State doctrine, along with an applied understanding of the most practical ways to manage those obligations.

More importantly we will explore the key role of Officers and Elected Members, in establishing sound organisational skills, knowledge and capability prior to an emergency. Prior planning, training and readiness, supports and encourage sound leadership when the community needs it during an emergency.
