Queensland disaster management planning guidelines 2005 for local government
The aim of these guidelines is to provide a process for local governments to develop a local disaster management plan, and to understand the need for a consistent local government approach to disaster management planning. These guidelines will outline all of the necessary components to meet requirements under the Disaster Management Act 2003.
These guidelines have been developed with the knowledge that local governments are no strangers to disaster management planning – these guidelines will further support local governments to formalise disaster management best practices already established. More specifically, they are designed to assist local governments to either update existing plans, complete nearly finished plans or develop new plans.
