Welcome to the Glenelg Shire Council

MEDIA RELEASE -Have your say on emergency information

15 June 2018

Emergency agencies are inviting community members to provide their feedback on how local services can better prepare residents for emergencies as part of a new online survey.

The Glenelg Emergency Event survey is currently open for submissions via council’s online community engagement platform Your Say Glenelg, seeking to gauge public interest on preferences for emergency information and events.

Glenelg Shire emergency and risk manager Lynne McMahon encouraged community members to participate in the online survey, citing the feedback received as ‘instrumental’ for future engagement and emergency preparation activities.

“The community is the first and foremost factor we consider for in the event of an emergency, so it is only fitting that we ask the community directly on how we can improve our communication and engagement methods for all things emergency planning, whether that be fires, floods or other natural disasters,” she said.

“In particular, the feedback received from this survey will allow us to capture the concerns and needs of residents for a local emergency information event, which is being planned by the Glenelg Municipal Emergency Management Planning Committee.
The event will educate the community on household preparedness before a bushfire and relief and recovery efforts.

“I encourage all local residents to please take the time to complete the short survey; your responses will help to ensure our region is best prepared in the event of an emergency.”

Community members can participate in the Glenelg Emergency Event survey by visiting the Your Say Glenelg website at

Survey submissions will close late June.
