Generic Caravan Park Evacuation Plan

This generic Emergency and Evacuation Plan has been developed to provide a basic structure and set of procedures for emergency management that is clearly outlined and functional. This Plan details the emergency contact details, triggers and actions for high risks, and the equipment and procedures in place to deal with foreseeable emergency events. This document has been created as a guideline to assist in the development of a functional document with the intention of continuing development to improve resilience and communication between emergency services and park owners in times of need. It is highly recommended each park contact both Tweed Shire Council and NSW SES, once the document is complete, for further discussion and assistance.

Like many communities across Australia, the Tweed is exposed to a range of natural hazards, such as flooding, bush fires and severe storms. These emergency events can occur at any time, often with little or no warning.

In times of emergency, people can feel isolated, vulnerable and in need of immediate support.

Emergency management policies and programs help to manage risks to the community and the environment so that everyone can live, work and play in a safe and sustainable physical and social environment.

Council works closely with government agencies, private organisations and volunteers to ensure a coordinated approach to help the community prevent, respond to and recover from emergencies events.
