Noosa disaster management plans outline the procedures for a disaster or emergency in the Noosa region to ensure:
- effective and coordinated planning
- response and recovery.
The goal of the plans is for a speedy return to a safe and secure environment as soon as possible.
The Noosa Local Disaster Management Group developed the plans. The main focus is to help reduce:
- the loss of human life
- illness or injury to people
- property loss or damage
- damage to the environment that results from a disaster.
Combined with state and federal disaster management arrangements, the plans help to ensure assistance to the Noosa community and Sunshine Coast region if required.
Effective recovery after a disaster is vital to ensure the wellbeing of individuals and our community. The Noosa Local Disaster Recovery Plan puts into words how Noosa will undertake recovery operations during and following a disaster. The Plan provides a framework for the management and coordination of recovery.
It is more than simply the replacement of what has been destroyed and the rehabilitation of those affected. It is a social developmental process that involves all sections of the community working together to return to normal.
