Involving communities to enhance community engagement and planning

Risk Frontiers recently partnered with the NSW State Emergency Service (NSW SES) and Molino Stewart Pty Ltd to pilot approaches to improve community involvement in emergency planning. Pilots were conducted across three communities, with their design being informed by a comprehensive review of existing research. The outcome of the project was a list of key principles that NSW SES now utilise to inform their engagement with communities. A full overview of the project and its results has been published in the recent edition of the Australian Journal of Emergency Management, which can be found here https://ajem.infoservices.com.au/items/AJEM-32-02-15.
