Disaster management plan vital for all sporting clubs
IN recent years Queensland has been hit by a number of major natural disasters involving high winds, floodwaters and fires.
No matter where your club is located, it is vital that you are well prepared.
A Disaster Management workshop will examine the issues surrounding natural and man-made hazards focusing specifically on 'PPRR' - Prevention, Preparedness, Response and Recovery.
Topics include writing an effective disaster management plan for the future; best communication tools for a disaster; insurance - what is covered and what isn't; effects of a disaster on the club's future financial health and membership; how to achieve a quick recovery effort and working through the maze of help and support potentially available.
The workshop is on Wednesday, August 16, from 6-9pm at Goodna Bowls Club.
