Emergency Recovery

Emergency recovery is the coordinated process of supporting emergency affected communities in the reconstruction of the physical infrastructure, rehabilitation of the natural environment and restoration of emotional, economic and physical well-being.

The purpose of providing recovery services is to assist the affected community towards management of its own recovery. It is recognised that when a community experiences a significant event, there is a need to supplement the personal, family and community structures that have been disrupted by the event.

The role and responsibilities of Council in aiding recovery is identified in the Municipal Emergency Management Plan.
