The new Australian Disaster Resilience Knowledge Hub has been launched

The new Australian Disaster Resilience Knowledge Hub launched 12 May 2017

The new Knowledge Hub is collections-based and includes Australian disaster information, the Emergency Management Library, the Australian Journal of Emergency Management, the national collection of disaster resilience and emergency management handbooks and manuals, and resources for teachers.

Additional resources and information will be added regularly, including guest collections from emergency services agencies and relevant national and international organisations.

The Knowledge Hub welcomes contributions from anyone with further information or resources on Australian disasters and topics of relevance to the Knowledge Hub collections with contribution links available through the website.

The Hub will be an invaluable resource for students, teachers, researchers, historians and emergency services staff and volunteers.

About the map

Historical disaster information can be searched by disaster type, location, number of injuries, number of fatalities, insurance cost and date. You can also search for a specific event using the free text field and search for all events within a date range.

Data overlays on the map will provide additional information for events e.g. rainfall, temperature, the number of dwellings and population.
