Disaster and Emergency

The Livingstone Shire Local Disaster Management Plan (LDMP) has been prepared to ensure there is a consistent approach to Disaster Management. This plan is an important tool for managing potential disasters and is a demonstrated commitment towards enhancing the safety of the community.

This plan has been developed to be consistent with the Disaster Management Standards and Guidelines and importantly to integrate into the Queensland Disaster Management Arrangements. The primary focus is to help reduce the potential adverse effects of an event by conducting activities before, during and after to help reduce loss of human life, illness, property and economic loss and environmental damage.
