The Torres Strait Local Disaster Management Group works to reduce the negative impact disasters can have on communities and responds to disasters when they happen.
Community Disaster Management Groups work together to reduce the effects of a disaster. When a disaster or major emergency happens, they then respond quickly to and ensure communities can recover.
Torres Shire Council and Torres Strait Island Regional Council work together to form the Group.
The Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) has a new Torres Strait weather and tides page on their website.
The Local Disaster Management Plan (PDF) sets out the legislated arrangements required under the Queensland Disaster Management Act 2003.
