Emergency planning and preparation

The Equi-Evac Centre Network was funded by the All West Australians Reducing Emergencies (AWARE) program and facilitated by the City of Mandurah. This project was the recipient of the WA Resilient Australia Awards 2017 and the National Resilient Australia Awards 2017.

The project aims to develop short term evacuation arrangements for equestrian communities who may be displaced in times of disaster. These resources will assist local governments and equestrian communities to create consistent, district-wide procedures for the management of evacuation centres at local public equestrian facilities, and enhance local welfare arrangements during a crisis.


The 'Prepare the Peel' Project was funded by the National Disaster Resilience Program, and aimed to;

  • Raise emergency preparedness in the Peel tourism industry, focusing on the short term accommodation sector
  • Promote consistent messaging at the 'Looking', 'Booking' and 'Checking-in' stages of a visitor's journey 
  • Better prepare the traveller by encouraging the use of emergency 'alerting' and 'reporting' mobile Apps and resources 

The Department of Fire and Emergency Services and the City of Mandurah would like to acknowledge all the project partners and participating networks.


Any queries regarding the project or resources can be directed to: emergencymanagement@mandurah.wa.gov.au
