Emergency response

In Australia, natural disasters such as flood, fire and earthquakes can strike without warning. Your business is critical to your financial wellbeing and could also be a necessary service to your community, so it's important to protect what you can in times of crisis.

Emergency management is about successfully adapting your business to changes in its environment. Resilient businesses prepare for possible risks, take appropriate action during emergencies, and recover.

The good thing is you don't have to plan for emergencies on your own. There is plenty of advice and support to help you.
