Plenary Session
Emergency Management & Sector Resilience

With extreme weather events increasing in frequency and intensity, we need to be more prepared than ever before to handle emergencies.

From storms and floods to heatwaves, bush fires and drought, we are coming up against an increasing state of VUCA – (Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity, and Ambiguity), and unfortunately the next extreme weather event is not a matter of ‘if’ but ‘when’.

As providers of the ultimate essential service, we also have a commitment to public health and the environment. How do we plan and prepare for emergencies? How do we ensure staff wellbeing and community safety in a severe weather event? What are the priorities when things get tough?
