Connect & Prepare is a community disaster preparedness project of Dungog Shire Community Centre. The approach to disaster preparedness in this project has been informed by our community's experiences through recovery from a flash flooding event that hit our community on 21st April 2015.

As the Dungog community moved through their recovery inevitably the focus shifted to preparedness and what individuals could do to not only be more prepared to face and survive a natural disaster but also how they as a community could be more prepared to support themselves after a disaster event to rebuild and thrive in their recovery.

Our approach to preparedness has been to make it everybody's language, to take the conversations into the everyday. Identifying and harnessing the existing capacities, networks, resources and opportunities that a person, family or community has that can be accessed and adapted to bring strength and support to a new identified challenge.
