DISASTER MANAGEMENT PLAN

The Burke Shire is no stranger to natural disasters, the towns and properties in the shire are regularly isolated for long periods and primary producers all too often suffer losses through flood.

The Burke Local Disaster Management Group is a dedicated group of council and non council staff that works throughout the year to reduce the impact of natural disaster on the residents of the shire. This group is fully supported by the Burke Shire Council and the council is committed to ensuring the safety and sustainability of the shire through best practice disaster management.
