Increasing the resilience of the NSW Deaf Community to natural hazards

Release of report: Increasing the resilience of the NSW Deaf Community to natural hazards.
The Deaf Society has been working with the University of NSW, Sydney University and the Emergency Services on a 2 year NSW State Government funded project looking at increasing the resilience of the Deaf Community in NSW to natural hazards. The project aimed to:

  1. Increase the resilience of the Deaf Community to future natural hazards and disasters via improved access to and provision of emergency management information; and
  2. Increase the effective resources of NSW emergency service organisations enabling them to deliver their core business (to the Deaf Community) and to improve the deaf awareness for staff and professional officers within those organisations.

We are pleased to release the reports for your information with the key findings and recommendations presented.

Documents of report can be founded here.
