Disaster Mastermind recognises that natural disasters, biosecurity and severe technological emergencies are occurring with greater severity and frequency.
Recent emergencies including storms, floods, animal health and biosecurity, urban and industrial fires, and bush and grass fires, are challenging our traditional emergency planning, preparation, response and recovery practices.
At Disaster Mastermind we recognise that each community has its own unique characteristics and landscape. These produce different risks and hazards. All communities have vulnerabilities and strengths which influence their capacity to plan for, respond to and recover from emergency events. Knowing your risks and the potential consequences of emergencies, and building local capacity around these can reduce community disruption and impacts on households, the economy, primary production and business.
Everybody has a role to play – government, emergency services, non-government and not-for-profit services, the private sector, industry groups and communities themselves. Planning for what your community, business or industry can do before, during and after an emergency, and what support or additional needs you might have will go a long way in building resilience and reducing the impacts of unexpected disasters and emergencies.

With over 20 years experience in local and state government, and non-government organisations, Disaster Mastermind provides comprehensive and collaborative services across all phases of emergencies including:
