SHIRE of Mundaring is conducting a community survey to gauge awareness and actions around emergency preparedness within the local shire area.
In June 2016 the Shire, in partnership with the Red Cross and Department of Fire and Emergency Services (DFES), employed an Emergency Preparedness Officer. The objective of this 12-month project was to promote community involvement in emergency preparedness and mitigation activities through targeted community engagement.
With AWARE (All West Australians Reducing Emergencies) Program funding, the project used a range of information and resources available at State level from Red Cross, DFES, the Department of Parks and Wildlife, and Office of Energy Safety. At a local level the project included engagement with community events, youth networks and community groups on how they could become better prepared for an emergency.
The Emergency Preparedness Officer Project Community Survey is one of the project's measures of effectiveness with the cumulative statistics gathered to be included in a final report.
To assist the Shire in gathering this feedback, please complete the short 5-minute survey before 4pm on Monday 8 May. Alternatively, hard copies are available at the Shire Administration Building, the Hub of the Hills and Shire libraries.
The Shire appreciates feedback on your awareness of the project and emergency preparedness resources.
