Factsheet

 

Description

This set of three factsheets was developed as a result of a project involving Emergency Management Australia, the Kiwirrkurra flood recovery project, in consultation with the Fire and Emergency Services Authority of Western Australia (FESA)

These organisations together documented the experiences of the Kiwirrkurra Indigenous community which was devastated by a major flood in 2001. The purpose of these resources was to identify the lessons learned so that other communities and emergency managers can benefit.

The resources aim to demonstrate that through developing and maintaining good and trusted relationships, good communication channels and understanding and respecting relationships, culture and country, even the most severe of emergencies can be managed and the community can survive.
