For those with a Disability

Disability Inclusive Disaster Risk Reduction (DIDRR)

DIDRR means making sure the needs and voices of people with disability are included in disaster risk management. Disaster risk management has four phases: prevention, preparedness, response and recovery. To decrease risk and increase resilience, the needs of people with disability must be considered in all four phases. 

People with disability and carers can access information about the Person-Centred Emergency Preparedness (P-CEP) Workbook here or download an online version here.

The P-CEP is a conversation guide used by people with disability to tailor emergency preparedness to their individual support needs.

Contact Rockhampton Regional Council’s Disaster Management Unit on 4932 9000 or 1300 225 577 or email at disastermanagement@rrc.qld.gov.au if you would like to be involved in the DIDRR project or require further information.
