The Emergency Preparation Reference Group will be managing the overall development of content for this section and will be a point of contact for questions or help. They will also be putting together a case study template to make it easy for organisations to share their learnings. If you aleady have a case study template for using social media for emergency communications, please contact us.

Otherwise, please jump in and make a start with adding links to published case studies.

These case studies are provided to help your organisation to prepare for, respond to and recover from emergencies. We aim to cover the full spectrum of major emergencies that can impact a community eg:

  • Natural disasters and severe weather events such as flood, storm surge, cyclone, bushfire, earthquake, blizzard
  • Manmade emergencies such as a train/bus/plane crash, gas leak/chemical spill/terrorism
  • Health emergencies such as pandemics
