Disaster & Emergency

The Carpentaria Shire is prone to hazardous weather conditions and therefore, in order for Council to ensure a safe, effective and efficient response to a disaster event, it is important to have effective and coordinated disaster management arrangements at all levels of Government to result in successful recovery.

The Carpentaria Local Disaster Management Plan details the disaster management arrangements for the area, and outlines the roles and responsibilities of the various agencies involved in disaster management.

In accordance with the Local Disaster Management Plan, Council have also implemented an Evacuation Plan.

Council is working hard to ensure the region is ready for disaster and it is important that you are prepared as well. By being prepared and informed you can significantly reduce the impacts of disasters to you, your family and your property. Residents can access helpful information in The Carpentaria Disaster Information Booklet.
