New disaster dashboards help manage disaster risk

Monday, 16 August 2021

The NRJO has successfully secured funding through Stream 2 of the Bushfire Community Recovery and Resilience fund to allow Kyogle, Lismore, Ballina and Richmond Valley Councils implement Emergency Dashboards.

The Bushfire Community Recovery and Resilience Fund project has been facilitated through the joint Commonwealth/State Disaster Recovery Funding Arrangements. The grant means all six councils within the NRJO will now feature an emergency dashboard on their website.

NRJO Chair, Cr Danielle Mullholand said the Emergency dashboards will provide real-time information to help those living in the Northern Rivers be aware of, prepare for and respond to local emergencies.

“Localised emergency updates, preparedness advice and seasonal awareness of potential risks is more important than ever.

“The residents of the Northern Rivers are acutely aware of the impact emergencies can have on communities following the past bushfire season, extended drought and other severe hazard events,” Cr Mullholand said.

The Emergency Dashboard is an online warehouse of real-time, local emergency information and on each dashboard you’ll find:

  • real-time information related to live emergencies
  • information to help you prepare for an emergency
  • guidance on the assistance you can access to recover from a recent emergency

The local dashboards will deliver information specific to the disaster risks and mitigations of localities.
