Current declared disasters
There are no current declared disasters.
Based on the extent to which an emergency event impacts on the community, and the degree of damage caused, the Premier or Minister may declare the event to be a disaster.
Once the emergency event has become a 'declared' disaster, grant schemes and other assistance programs may be activated.
If you are in an emergency situation but a disaster has not been declared, there is still immediate help available to you.
