Disaster Communications Review


Bellingen Shire Council is currently undertaking a review of its disaster communication processes and systems to enable more effective and targeted communications before, during and after a disaster event.

In developing this survey, Council has gathered feedback from community members through a short survey.

The survey period has now concluded. However, if you would like to share your feedback regarding Council's disaster communications processes, please use the contact details listed on this page or email council@bellingen.nsw.gov.au

The survey covered the following areas:

  • Past disaster event experiences
  • Barriers to information
  • Future disaster events and communication preferences
  • Bellingen Shire Council communication
  • Social media use
  • Council website

Council also conducted several drop-in sessions across the Shire, with residents sharing their insights and experiences regarding disaster communication at these locations.

The desired outcome of the project is the delivery of a strategy that caters to community need and diversity of communications whilst ensuring a scalable and responsive process for Council. 

Please note: the winner of the $100 Shop Local Gift Card has been drawn and notified.
