$5.5 million worth in projects to improve natural disaster resilience
30 July 2015
The State Government have announced more than $5.5 million of projects to assist communities across South Australia to build resilience to natural disasters
While the nature and size of the country’s landscape meant that natural hazards were a fact of life in Australia, communities are stepping up efforts to manage natural disaster risks.
Natural disasters have an enormous impact on our economy, businesses and communities. The projects are led by state agencies, local councils, non-government organisations and volunteer organisations are all designed to help communities better prepare and respond to natural disasters.
The purpose of the Natural Disaster Resilience Program is to help reduce the impact of emergencies, develop appropriate emergency management capability and capacity and support volunteers.
Over the last few months, South Australians have experienced a variety of natural disasters that have heightened the community’s awareness about the importance of preparation and resilience.
The funding provided by the Federal and State Governments will help deliver a variety of projects to support the community in their efforts.
Funding will go to 33 projects including:
- $11,300 to establish a mobile large animal rescue capability and conduct associated volunteer training.
- $100,000 to conduct a state-wide extreme weather and heatwave risk mitigation campaign.
- $40,000 to directly support the social recovery of Sampson Flat and surrounding communities impacted by significant bushfire events in January 2015.
- $74,000 to build resilience in Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) communities through the development of volunteer education networks.
- $49,500 to provide training to increase the number of Surf Life Saving SA volunteers qualified to conduct hoist rescues from the Westpac Rescue Helicopter.
- $47,424 to better understand the challenges and opportunities for cross-functional volunteer recruitment and retention in the Limestone Coast region.
- $71,280 for the development of a Community Emergency Plan for the Middle Beach settlement as a template for other coastal communities.
