Background

QFES is committed to an all-hazards, comprehensive approach to disaster management. As the recent flooding and tsunami events have continued to demonstrate, our preparation and planning needs to be extended beyond the more frequent and predictable events. Low probability – high consequence events such as earthquake are possible, and we need to be prepared.


Aim

The Queensland State Disaster Risk Report considers such low probability and high consequence events and has developed resources to assist the development of local and district disaster management plans and specific hazard plans.


The aim of this webinar is to:

  • raise awareness of the earthquake risk in Queensland and available resources

  • share knowledge and experiences from local communities and disaster managers
