Welcome to the Australian Emergency Management Knowledge Hub

The Knowledge Hub provides research, resources and news relevant to emergency management and includes statistics and information, photos, video and media about past disaster events.

For those working in the emergency management sector there is the ability to use the forum space to discuss ideas and issues affecting the sector by registering as a Knowledge Hub member.

We would like to thank the organisations which have contributed to and supported the development of the Knowledge Hub. We welcome all contributions and feedback from the emergency management sector.
