During an Emergency

In an emergency, we support response agencies with the provision of local resources, working collaboratively with the incident controller to manage the impact of the emergency on our community.  

During these times, we;

  • Attend the emergency control centre which is a location from which response agency support, relief and recovery activities are coordinated
  • Activities may include opening and operating our emergency relief centres for displaced residents.
  • Services may include assistance with food and clothing, temporary accommodation, personal support services and access to grants or financial aid
  • Other activities include, road/tree clearing, traffic management support, animal welfare related services and assisting the distribution of warnings and information to the public and media
