Emergency management

We coordinate efforts to respond to and recover from disasters and emergencies.

We lead the Australian Government disaster and emergency management response. We work to build a disaster resilient Australia that prevents, prepares, responds and recovers from disasters and emergencies.


Recovery assistance

The Australian Government helps individuals and communities recover from disasters with financial support. The type of help available depends on the impacts of the natural disaster.
