Emergency management planning for children and young people
Children and young people should be at the core of policies and plans that build community resilience to emergency and disaster events.
Our publication; Emergency Management Planning for Children and Young People: Planning guide for Local Government aims to assist local government emergency managers in planning for the needs of children and young people in emergencies.
The guide outlines best practice and practical steps that emergency management planners can carry out to immediately improve planning for the needs of children and young people when emergencies and disasters occur.
This publication was produced by the Department of Human Services, in a joint project with the Australian Government.
