Disaster Management

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.
