Like the rest of Queensland, the City of Logan is not immune to the threat of natural disasters such as floods, bushfires, heatwaves and severe weather. These hazards may result in road closures, infrastructure failures and other potential impacts, which may affect individuals and the community in a number of different ways.
While significant disaster or large scale emergency events will involve government and nongovernment agencies, the active participation of local communities before, during and after such events will ensure the best outcomes for individuals, households, businesses and the community as a whole. Building community resilience can reduce the impact of any disaster or emergency on the local community.
We know that as a community we may not be able to prevent disasters or serious events from occurring, however we can prepare our community and enhance our resilience to the adverse impact of any threat through effective pre-planning.
