This website is designed to provide guidance to communities to help them become better prepared for emergencies.

If your community is prepared for emergencies, the effects of any incident can be more easily managed and your community can be more involved in any response or recovery.

Emergencies can happen at any time of the day or night, therefore, it is useful to have a simple plan of action based on possible risks to your community, e.g. severe weather, power failure, flooding.
