Local Government Disaster Management Plan

Because of our remote location and the seclusion of some parts of our shire, the Council’s Disaster Management group works according to Queensland legislation to develop a Disaster Management Plan.

Our Disaster Management Plan is designed to ensure the effective coordination of resources in the event of natural disasters occurring in the Wujal Wujal shire.

It includes our outline of strategies and priorities for the events most likely to happen in our region. The plan aims to: 

  • identify procedures to prevent risks
  • prepare the community
  • ensure the right response in the event of a disaster
  • provide adequate assistance to affected communities to help recovery after an event.

Please contact us for a copy of our current Local Government Disaster Management Plan.

For further advice and current warnings about preparing for floods, storms, cyclones and bushfires, please visit the Queensland Government’s Disaster Management website
