Our Local Disaster Management Plan outlines how to prevent, prepare for, respond to and recover from a disaster or emergency event.
The plan ensures we develop strategies that will reduce the impact of a disaster - including natural disasters or disasters caused by people. The plan considers all types of disasters, including disasters that disrupt essential services or involve an attack against the state.
The Local Disaster Management Group is responsible for disaster management in the Scenic Rim.
The group helps the community to:
reduce the potential damaging effects of a disaster
prepare to manage the effects of a disaster, and
respond to and recover from a disaster or emergency.
The Scenic Rim Local Disaster Management Group (LDMG) includes representatives from:
Scenic Rim Regional Council
Queensland Police Service
Queensland Ambulance Service
Queensland Fire and Emergency Services
Department of Agriculture and Fisheries
Department of Communities, Housing and Digital Economy
Department of Defence
Department of Transport and Main Roads

To govern the Scenic Rim Local Disaster Management Group in its operation, roles and responsibilities, the group follows the endorsed Scenic Rim Local Disaster Management Group Terms of Reference and Guide.
