Funding for Emergency Management Projects
Friday, 28th May 2010 at 12:48 pm

The Federal Government to invest $3.6 million to assist Australian communities respond to and recover from natural disasters and emergencies.

Attorney-General, Robert McClelland says the funding will support twenty-two national projects and will improve the resilience of local communities and businesses.

Successful national projects are being supported through the National Emergency Management Program and include:

  • Fire Detection Trials Evaluation to review the performance of fire detection warning systems;
  • Bushfire Arson Investigation Course to assist the investigation of bushfire arson by police and fire-fighting authorities;
  • National Tsunami Inundation Modelling to conduct tsunami mapping and risk assessment;
  • National Tsunami Community Education Strategy to underpin the development of a comprehensive community education program in relation to tsunamis;
  • Emergency Management Volunteer Leadership Training to promote effective leadership within volunteer structures;
  • National Emergency Management Volunteer’s Summit which will bring together emergency management volunteers to collaborate and share learnings; and
  • National Guide to Climate Change and Emergency Management to assist the incorporation of climate change and emergency management issues in land use planning.

The projects were recommended by the National Emergency Management Committee (NEMC) comprising senior emergency management officials from each State and Territory.

As well the Attorney-General’s department has developed a campaign to thank emergency service volunteers and to encourage new volunteers to join our emergency services.

The campaign will include posters for recruiting and thanking volunteers, a video message from the Federal Attorney General, and flyers that are available electronically for organisations to use for recruiting by email.

For more information on the program go to www.ema.gov.au/volunteers and watch the 4 minute ‘thank you’ on Youtube. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HISHZ0btpkE
