As the peak of an Emergency begins to pass, response activities transition to the recovery.
At this point the Shire of Dardanup takes a lead role, as required by the Emergency Management Act 2005.
Assistance with community recovery from an Emergency goes well beyond the ‘clean-up’.
Comprehensive recovery requires private, health, infrastructure, welfare services plus government and non-government sectors to work together.
To ensure the best outcomes for our community following an Emergency, the Shire of Dardanup has a Local Emergency Recovery Plan.
It recognises effective and lasting recovery occurs when a community works together taking into account the personal, social, financial, health, industrial and economic factors impacts of an Emergency.
The LERP is not prescriptive as every Emergency will be different but it will allow decision-makers to formulate appropriate and informed decisions at times when they are likely to be under significant pressure.
