Disaster Response to Cyclone Marcia

Posted on April 9, 2015

Together raised concerns in relation to disaster management processes by the department during Cyclone Marcia.  Specifically where staff were advised that schools would be open and staff expected to return to work.  This was despite the fact that school management had advise they felt schools weren’t in a state to have staff or students return.

Management advised that there would be a review of the response and invited Together to participate in this and provide feedback which we have done.
