Disaster Risk Management Centre <p>The DRMC is organised and structured into the following portfolios that focus on reducing the risk of disasters, preparedness, rapid and effective response to disasters and post disaster recovery: </p><ul><li>DOC and Systems Integration and Special Projects </li><li>Special Planning and Critical Infrastructure</li><li>Training and Capacity Building: Corporate, Commerce and Industry </li><li>Training and Capacity Building: Community and Volunteer Management </li><li>Public Awareness and Preparedness </li><li>Logistics Planning and Fleet Management </li></ul> <p>The Disaster Risk Management Centre (DRMC) identifies, prevents or reduces the occurrence of disasters and softens the impact of those that cannot be prevented. </p><p>We also facilitate the coordination, integration and efficiency of multiple emergency services and other essential services to ensure that these organisations work together, both pro-actively through risk reduction, planning and preparedness; and reactively through response, relief, recovery and rehabilitation.</p><p>It is the DRMC’s responsibility to prepare and execute the City’s Municipal Disaster Risk Management Plan. The City’s Municipal Disaster Risk Management Plan is driven by a Disaster Coordinating Team (DCT), which is a multi-disciplinary team that executes contingency plans. In the event of a disaster or a large scale emergency, the DCT assembles in the Disaster Operations Centre (DOC), and acts as a central information point to communicate swiftly with the public during emergencies.</p><span> <ul class="lrg-icon-content"><li class="lrg-icon lrg-link"><div class="list-links"> <a title="title" href="">Report fires, flooding or rockfalls​</a><a title="title" href="">Read our disaster emergency guidelines for families</a><a title="title" href="">Read about disaster e​mergencies in the community</a><a title="title" href="">See our Municipal Disaster Risk Management Plan</a><a title="title" href="">See our Family Disaster Preparedness Guidelines</a></div></li></ul></span><img alt="" src="" style="BORDER:0px solid;" /><div class="contact"><h4>Emergencies</h4><ul><li> <em>Telephone: </em> <br> <em> <a>107</a> (from a landline) </em></li><li> <em> <a>021 480 7700</a> (from a cellphone)</em></li><h4> General enquiries</h4><ul> <li> <em>Telephone: </em> <br> <em> <a>0809 114 357</a></em></li> <em> <li>Email: <br> <a href=""></a></li></em> </ul><h4>Disaster Risk Management Training Centre</h4><ul><li> <em>Telephone: </em> <br> <em> </em> <a> <em>021 444 8197</em></a></li><li> <em>Email: </em> <br> <em> </em> <a href=""> <em></em></a></li><li><h4> <span style="font-style:normal;">Head: Training and Capacity Building, Training Volunteers</span></h4></li><li><p> <span style="font-style:normal;">Deon Le Roux</span></p> <em>Telephone: </em> <br> <em> <a>021 444 8201</a></em></li> <em> <li>Email: <br> <a href=""></a></li> <li><h4> <span style="font-style:normal;">Head: Public Awareness and Preparedness</span></h4></li> <li><p> <span style="font-style:normal;">Charlotte Powell</span></p> <em>Telephone: </em> <br> <em> <a>021 597 5013</a></em></li> <em> <li>Email: <br> <a href=""></a></li></em> </em></ul> <em> </em></ul></div><p>Find a list of <a href="">emergency numbers​</a>.</p>
