This dashboard will provide our community with localised emergency updates, preparedness advice and seasonal awareness of potential risks,” Mayor Palmer said. “The Port Stephens community has experienced many emergencies — from floods, fires and storms to COVID-19. “We know the impact these emergencies can have and how important it is to be prepared,” he said. “I recommend bookmarking the disaster dashboard link so you have quick and easy access to the most up-to-date information in the event of an emergency.” The Port Stephens Disaster Dashboard is an online warehouse of real-time, local emergency information supported by Resilience NSW’s Regional Disaster Preparedness Program and rolled out to 27 councils across the state. The dashboard contains: • real-time information related to live emergencies • information to help prepare for an emergency • guidance on the assistance available to recover from a recent emergency. The local dashboards will deliver information specific to the disaster risks and mitigations of localities in each pilot program area and provide a broad and consistent view of data from across the 27 pilot councils in the Canberra, Hunter and Mid North Coast Joint Organisations.
