Livingstone Shire Council is committed to increasing the individual capacity and resilience in all residents. Everyone has a role to play in making Queensland the most disaster resilient state in Australia. The Queensland Strategy for Disaster Resilience (2017) states that as Queenslanders, we are disaster resilient when: we understand the potential disaster risks we face. We work together to better manage disaster risk.
Local Government has a very ‘hands on’ approach to raising awareness across the different demographic and geographical areas in the Shire.
