Disaster Management Plan endorsed by council
The Sunshine Coast community can now access a new Disaster Management Plan after it was formally endorsed by council today.
The revised Sunshine Coast Council Local Disaster Management Plan 2015-18 builds on the previous plan which was a carryover from the pre-deamalgation council and still accommodated Noosa council.
Both councils will now have their own specific disaster management plans and have signed a memorandum of understanding to continue to provide each other with disaster assistance if required.
Local Disaster Management Group Co-ordinator Andrew Ryan said the plan’s primary focus was to ensure the safety of the Sunshine Coast community.
“It aims to preserve lives and prevent injuries, to mitigate property damage and to protect our environment,” Mr Ryan said.
