Why should you do the training?
Did you know? 25% of Community Organisations think they would close for good after an extreme weather event?
The recent Diversity in Disaster Conference in Melbourne forcefully brought home the message: Our clients are some of the people most at risk in times of natural disaster.
What can we do to ensure they survive a catastrophic event and get the support they need afterwards?
These are the questions we address in the Community Services Disaster Planning Workshop. We help you benchmark your organisation’s current level of preparedness and work through ‘Six Steps to Resilience’.
It’s a workshop that raises many questions you may not have considered, and provides you with practical tools to address the issues of business continuity and disaster resilience – both for your organisation and for your clients.
The workshop in Perth on 22 June 2018 will be the final workshop in the series funded by the Natural Disaster Resilience Program. WACOSS workshop facilitator Stuart Reid has run 15 of these workshops around the State to date, so he has picked up many tips from agencies exposed to all kinds of hazards, from storms and floods to bushfires and even earthquakes.
Stuart also attended the Diversity in Disaster Conference, so he has the latest research and agency experience available to share as well. His first-hand experience of disasters as a veteran of Darwin’s Cyclone Tracy adds an extra dimension and some unique insights.
