Disaster Management Workshop

This Workshop is presented by Sports Community. 

It is important that sporting organisations spend time preparing and planning for natural disasters to mitigate effects of adverse weather. While flooding in recent years has had a severe impact on local sporting infrastructure, organisations also need to be conscious of all possible natural disasters including storm, cyclone, tropical low, tidal surge, bushfire, drought and tsunami.

Disaster preparation is an important topic that sporting organisations across the region (and the nation) need to consider. While the potential disasters that may affect an organisation will differ dependent on the climate and location of the organisation, the best way for your organisation to cope with a natural disaster is to have a plan before it happens.

All disaster preparation plans have some common elements. Key elements to consider in preparing a disaster management plan include:

Types of disasters and likelihood of occurrence;

-emergency contacts;
-communication strategies;
-document and information management;
-and property and equipment protection.
