Evacuation centres

Planning for an evacuation centre needs to address many public health concerns. These include food, water, space, sanitation and hygiene requirements to:

  • maintain the health of evacuees and staff
  • minimise the risk of an outbreak of a communicable disease
  • maintain food safety.

Guidelines
