Your Emergency & Communication Plan

We strongly encourage all tourism stakeholders to ensure they are adequately prepared at all times for emergency situations

We have processes established to communicate accurate information to guests and those travelling the region.

It is of critical importance that only official up-to-date messages should be shared in an effort to prevent miscommunication and negative media attention during emergency events.

We have compiled below an official list of resources to help you prepare and refer to in a time of emergency.
