About this Event

Disaster Coordination

The Disaster Coordination Centre course provides participants with the knowledge and skills to work in a disaster coordination centre. The course enables the participant to understand the roles and responsibilities, and best practice.

Coordination underpins the entire disaster management system. It is defined in the Queensland Prevention, Preparedness, Response and Recovery Disaster Management Guideline (Qld PPRR DM Guideline) as:

The bringing together of organisations to ensure effective disaster management before, during and after an event. It is primarily concerned with systematic acquisition and application of resources (people, material, equipment in accordance with priorities set by disaster management groups. Coordination operates horizontally across organisations and agencies.

Coordination in disaster management is about the effective management of different agencies with a diverse range of expertise, resources and skills by ensuring that they work together to a common goal and resources are best used for the benefit of the community.

Effective management of any disaster relies on strong coordination arrangements, consultative decision making, collaboration and shared responsibility achieved through supporting relationships, trust and teamwork between individuals, agencies and the community.
