Emergency Risk Management Report
Uralla Shire Council (Council), through the Armidale Dumaresq Council, engaged QRMC Risk Management to assist it in the undertaking of an Emergency Risk Management Study to increase community safety through the identification, analysis, evaluation and treatment of natural disaster and other major risks from a preventative, mitigation perspective within the area of Council jurisdiction.
The study aimed to:
- Identify hazards and sources of risk with reasonable potential to impact the communities of the Uralla local government area (LGA);
- Analyse those risks; and,
- Determine the Treatment Options/Strategies to reduce the likelihood and/or impact of the risk, including consideration of existing control or mitigation measures.
The study concluded that a significant risk faced by Uralla communities is wildfire (bush and grass) with a large body of work and a number of strategies currently directed at mitigating this particular hazard, both from the Council itself, the Bushfire Management Committee (local fire plans) and the Uralla SES.
