Know What To Do In An Emergency?

What is the Safer Community Network

The Safer Community Network is an ‘all hazards’ approach to community safety and emergency management.

The aim of the network is to empower the whole of community to be resilient to emergency events, through social connection and a recognition of the value of a shared responsibility approach.

The Safer Community Network offers the opportunity to become part of a network of people who know what to do, when to do it and where to go for help when things go wrong. Becoming part of the network will allow you to receive information and opportunities based on the needs of your community, strengthen your neighbourhood connections, give us feedback and receive up to date news and knowledge regarding current community safety and emergency trends and tips.
