Emergency management

Charles Darwin University is committed to providing a safe environment in which to learn, work and live. Emergencies can happen at any time, in any place, and under any circumstances. From a bushfire to a cyclone; a medical emergency to a power outage; a transportation accident to a hazardous chemical spill, and everything in between, it is a fact of life that we will all experience an emergency at some point.

In the event of a major incident, the University's services and programmes could be interrupted, stopped completely, or operate at reduced capacity for an extended period of time. That is why it is important to take action now to prepare yourself for any kind of emergency.

Cyclone awareness

A Cyclone Awareness Session was held where staff from Northern Territory Emergency Services (NTES) and Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) gave a presentation to CDU staff on cyclone awareness, preparing for cyclones, understanding cyclone warning messages and how to get through when a cyclone strikes.It is important to know how to prepare before, during and after a cyclone.

Please take the time to watch the presentation and become familiar with all the stages of a cyclone. Remember, you could be left up to 72 hours without emergency support and you need to be able to look after yourself and those around you in the event of a cyclone. It is very important that you prepare your emergency kit.

The BOM has also provided other important information and useful links including links to relevant websites, Twitter and the BOM weather app.
