Emergencies are defined as "crisis events, actual or imminent, which endanger life, property or the environment, and which require a significant coordinated response". They are an inherent part of the Australian environment, and while we cannot prevent them, we can minimise the risks they pose.
The Town of Walkerville, and the Cities of Campbelltown, Norwood Payneham & St Peters, Burnside and Prospect have been working together to create a regional response to emergency situations.
This information has been collaborated, and you can visit the Emergency Risk Management website, hosted by Norwood, Payneham & St Peters. The information on the site is presented to:
- increase your understanding of emergencies;
- help you to understand what you can do yourself; and
- tell you who to contact when (if) you need help.
