People living with existing risk factors tend to be the hardest hit by emergencies, and take the longest to recover after the event. These groups often have existing relationships with community services organisations and so your service is well placed to share information and advocate for emergency preparedness for your clients.
Community Service Organisations play an important role in disaster resilience as they are a continuous presence in communities. They have a deeper understanding of the needs and strengths of a community and are well positioned to educate and advocate for emergency preparedness as well as supporting communities in long term recovery initiatives.
Below you will find links to a range of resources that can assist you in promoting emergency preparedness, response and recovery for your clients and community.
