Disaster management

Helping you prepare, respond and recover from disasters.

In recent years, Gympie Regional Council communities have endured bushfires, floods, heatwaves and severe storms with devastating impacts. These events have served as dramatic reminders of the critical importance of effective disaster management.

Local government is the primary provider of disaster management through Planning, Preparation, Response and Recovery; in partnership with other agencies and through its own legislated disaster management obligations.

Prior to any disaster events, Council is continually working with the local community to ensure we have a response capability and to assist community members to be prepared for any event.

Council provides extensive financial support to the Rural Fire Brigades and owns and maintains buildings, vehicles, and equipment for the State Emergency Service (SES).
