The Australian Institute for Disaster Resilience has developed two national publications on disaster resilience.

  • an A4 ready-reference poster outlining key national warnings principles and Australia's Total Warning System.

Safe and Health Crowded Places Handbook

This authoritative guide for groups organising events, managing venues, enacting health and safety protocols and related activities. This handbook had the input of many health professionals and includes a dedicated chapter on public health.

  • sample templates.
