Disasters: Know Your Role

Everyone has a role to play in disasters – especially in preparing ourselves, our family and community. Do you know your role?

Disasters: Know your Role is a three minute animation and quiz to test your knowledge of the systems in place and your role before, during and after a disaster.

Volunteering Qld and Emergency Management Queensland produced this resource as a plain English guide to the Queensland Disaster Management Arrangements.

Take the quiz, to find out if you know your role.

Individuals, businesses, communities and government all play an important role in preparing for, responding to and recovering from disasters.

The state’s Disaster Management Arrangements outline the responsibilities each group has.

As Queensland enters the summer storm season, people should familiarise themselves with their responsibilities.

People should not only prepare their homes and businesses for a range of possible disasters scenarios, but also understand their role before during and after a disaster.
