Day for Disaster Risk Reduction

In 2020 Blue Shield Australia is encouraging our members and friends to acknowledge International Day for Disaster Risk Reduction on the 13th of October as a useful time to get ready for the next Australian natural disaster season.
The theme that BSA has decided to focus on for 2020 is ‘Practical Preparedness’.

Key Points

  1. Update your Emergency Contacts List and make sure it’s accessible to everyone who needs it
  2. Review your current disaster preparedness plan or develop a plan that covers a key activity in each of the four basic protection measures:  prevention, preparation, response and recovery
  3. Make contact with your regional GLAM colleagues (galleries, libraries, archives, museums, historical societies, national trust sites…)
  4. As a GLAM group, connect with your local council and emergency services contacts
