North Burnett Region Disaster Management Plan

The North Burnett Region Disaster Management Plan forms the basis and guidelines for the Prevention, Preparedness, Response and Recovery activities of the joint agencies within the North Burnett Region.  The Plan is used when responding to a disaster that has impacted or has the potential to seriously impact upon the communities and infrastructure in the regional area.

Whilst as a community we may not be able to prevent disasters from occurring, we can prepare our community and enhance its resilience to the adverse impact of any threat. The Plan comprises two parts: a Main Plan with support plans for each of the six major towns in the North Burnett; and a Disaster Operating Manual comprising a number of Sub Plans and Operational Checklists.

Hard copies of the document are available to view at Council's Customer Service Centres.
