A risk assessment report has been produced for each of the Emergency Management districts in the state. These reports detail the results of the district risk assessments that were conducted as part of the State Risk Project.
Each report explains the risks posed to the district from a range of priority hazards. A credible worst-case scenario for each hazard was assessed in a workshop setting to determine the risks. Participants assessed how the hazards may impact upon the district's economy, its people, public administration, the environment and the social setting. These five key areas are part of the State Core Objectives.
The collective district data represents the culmination of three years of extensive collaboration that has included input from 406 individuals from 119 separate agencies. The State Risk Project has identified the district level as the best avenue for practically assessing risk, developing treatments and measuring capability. These reports provide a body of evidence that shows how emergencies will likely affect us. This will then inform mitigation options and expenditure priorities to build a more resilient state.
