 Emergency Preparedness Information

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.
