Community Response

Community Activated Emergency Centre (CAEC) Guide

This guide is to be reviewed and utilised in conjunction with the Community Recovery and Response Plan that relates to the impacted community. The CAEC guide can be used in any emergency event to assist the community to establish an Emergency Centre when they cannot contact outside assistance or if they have been directed to by MDC’s Emergency Operation Centre (EOC) Welfare Team.

The Guide also outlines how the community can coordinate their own welfare response using community members and how to provide a safe place for members of the community to support one another.
