AJEM features disaster reduction forum

Highlights from the International Day for Disaster Reduction and CRC research on incident management and communicating tsunami risk are featured in the latest edition of the Australian Journal of Emergency Management.

Published by the Australian Institute for Disaster Resilience, the January edition also recaps the 2016 Resilient Australia Awards, which took place in November 2016 and recognised innovative practices and achievements that resulted in safer, stronger, more resilient and better prepared communities.

Live to Tell recounts the CRC's event to acknowledge International Day for Disaster Reduction, a worldwide event on 13 October each year. The forum focused on reducing community exposure to natural hazards, with speakers from the CRC, Emergency Management Australia, the Australian Red Cross and Emergency Management Victoria discussing the latest research and policies targeted at preventing deaths in natural disasters.

The edition also includes a number of papers from CRC projects that presented at the AFAC16 Research Forum in Brisbane last August: 

CRC research on community understanding of tsunami risk and warnings in Australia is also covered in a paper by Professor Douglas Paton. The paper investigates how tsunami warnings are issued and understood by communities.

You can access the entire edition online for free. To receive printed copies of AJEM, subscribe to future print issues through the AJEM website (ajem.infoservices.com.au).
