Key State Recovery projects and programs are listed below:
The State Recovery Cadre aims to provide a team of pre-identified and endorsed individuals, who have expertise in a particular field, to support a local government-led, State supported recovery effort, after an emergency.
State Recovery Cadre support would be provided only when there are gaps in capability and capacity, and only when formally requested by the local government to the State Recovery Coordinator.
Through the State Recovery Coordinator, the State can provide recovery support for emergencies that go beyond the capability and capacity of the affected local government(s).
The State Recovery Cadre positions which support recovery operations after an emergency that requires State assistance include:
The Recovery Network is a free one-hour webinar or face-to-face meeting on recovery issues identified by the emergency management sector.
Held on a quarterly basis, the Recovery Network is an initiative of the DFES Recovery Directorate and WALGA. The purpose is to establish a Western Australian network for individuals who have roles and responsibilities in recovery, with an aim to build collaborative relationships and develop recovery capability and capacity across the State.
Local governments hold much of WA's recovery expertise and, as a result, play a vital role in ensuring all regions, no matter their size, resources or experience, are able to undertake recovery work to support communities affected by emergencies.
