Brisbane City Community Preparedness

Jurisdiction: Queensland

How can we use open and public data to understand the community’s level of preparedness for disruption to inform Council’s response and recovery efforts?

Brisbane City Council have a number of programs and websites with information to help prepare the community for different challenging times. We want to understand how prepared our residents and visitors are for these disruptive times. This could include for example, floods, but can include any disruption events.

Some of the indicators that could assist include:
• Insurance
• Sandbags
• Emergency kits
• First aid kits
• Connected to local community
• Vulnerable households / Census data (heatmap)
• Volunteer organisations

In addition to the highlighted datasets we encourage the use of other data including public data for this challenge.
