Fire Prevention & Emergency Management
Major Emergencies are an unfortunate fact of life and can come in many forms or types of hazard, including bushfire, flood, severe storm events and major road transport crashes.
The Shire of Katanning faces the potential risk of a variety of emergencies both natural and man-made, due to our topographical features.
The way we prepare for these events can make the difference between the emergency managed without significant loss and disruption or a disaster that can have major impact on life, property and the enviroment.
History shows that to minimise both the occurrance and impact of emergencies we need to move the common element of disaster by acknowledging:
- The inevitability of severe events.
- That emergency services may not be able to immediatly meet all individual and community needs.
- That people with special needs will reqiure additional support;and
- That preparing communities are less likely to suffer consequences of severe disaster and are more able to recover from them.
