Effective Disaster Recovery

Effective Disaster Recovery

7 February 2009 is now referred to as Black Saturday in Victoria. There were more than 40 days of fires that devastated 33 different communities and changed thousands of lives forever. For those in Melbourne on that day it felt ominous from the outset


What lessons can we learn from Australia's Black Saturday Bushfires?

PwC offers this report to communities and governments around the world. We hope that they will use the lessons learnt to assist their own communities’ recovery in the event of disaster. 

More importantly, we hope the report will inform disaster prevention and response planning, in order to avoid such catastrophic results as Black Saturday. 

This paper does not address any issues associated with the response of emergency services to the disaster.
