Emergencies & Disasters
Following legislation changes that came into force on 1 November 2010, the Gladstone Regional Council has adopted a revised Local Disaster Management Plan (LDMP).
This plan has been prepared utilising the principles of disaster management whereby generic arrangements are planned for to enable a response to a number of threats.
This document provides the basis for the approach to disaster management across the region and was developed in consultation with members of the Local Disaster Management Group consisting of representatives from Council, Police, Emergency Services and other agencies.
The plan aim to minimise the effect of disasters and enable Council, Police, Emergency Services and other agencies involved in disaster management to respond appropriately to events as they arise.
Local Disaster Coordination
During significant disaster and emergent events, and depending on circumstances, the Local Disaster Coordination Centre (LDCC) MAY be activated. Should this be the case, notification will be provided through the media and our Customer Service and Call Centre staff. The LDCC can be contacted by phoning 4977 6655 (NOTE: this number will only be activated in the event of an emergency).
Contact SES for flood, storm & cyclone damage on 132 500.
In a life threatening situation, always call 000.
In addition to the Local Disaster Management Plan, Council has additional information available. These are included in the publications listed below:
