The Local Disaster Management Plan sets out the legislated arrangements required under the Queensland Disaster Management Act 2003.
The Plan was endorsed on 5 August 2019 and outlines the disaster management system and specifies agreed roles and responsibilities. It also describes how the disaster management system works during an event.
NPA Local Disaster Management Group (LDMG) works to reduce the negative impact disasters can have on communities and responds to disasters when they happen.
Community Disaster Management Groups work together to reduce the effects of a disaster. When a disaster or major emergency happens, they then respond quickly to and ensure communities can recover.
