Please review the Project Update sent to all workshop participants in December 2016 with more details on the workshops and feedback.
“The Health Check questions are very good – if councils give honest answers then it will showcase the true areas that need improvement.”
“As a council in transition this is hugely valuable right now.”
“This tool will be a great way for councils to establish a baseline and benchmark on emergency management capability.”
“I see the tool as a way to standardise some language. The responses are still subjective but they deliver similar measurements. This is a big step forward.”
“This is a great way to ‘visualise’ our capability.”
“Council could use this tool for internal auditing and performance improvement.”
“A tool that promotes conversation and consistent reporting that can be shared with your neighbour can only be beneficial.”
“I wish I had access to the Health Check Report on my first day as a LEMO!”
