Whether they are natural or man-made, disasters and emergencies can and do happen. The City’s Risk Management Process has identified a number of risks that the City and its residents may face and these include amongst others, major storms, riverine flood, plane crash and chemical spill.
Whilst we cannot eliminate natural disasters we can better prepare ourselves to cope with the effects they may have on us.
The City has produced an Emergency Preparedness brochure to assist our residents in preparing for emergencies. The brochure is available in a range of languages to help our culturally and linguistically diverse community. It provides an indication of the types of things that you can do to prepare yourself, your family and your property for emergencies. The production of the brochure was funded by the City of Belmont and the Commonwealth’s Natural Disaster Resilience Program and is available in eight languages as well as English.
