Community safety sectors Emergency Managers
Every sector we work with is managing the rapid acceleration of knowledge and capabilities within community safety. We help our collaborators navigate this growth by providing hazard profiles, event scenarios, data, tools, applications, and guidance needed to prepare for the future.
Our community safety team collaborate with Emergency Managers to:
- Determine gaps within current capabilities
- In preparing for hazard events, we inform evidence-based plans to better prepare communities for the potential consequences of hazard events by providing tools, data, and assessments that identify gaps in existing strategies.
- During a threat or hazard event, our tools can provide rapid and reliable situational awareness, and our data provides information about the number of people, dwellings, infrastructure, agricultural and environmental assets potentially exposed

Case study Assessing and improving Western Australia’s vulnerability to tropical cyclones
How scenario modelling helped emergency managers in Western Australia to mitigate the impacts of tropical cyclone hazards.
The selection of credible scenarios enables our sector to improve planning for response and recovery and, most importantly, inform mitigation strategies by having a scale of tangible events to plan against.
