As part of its contribution to national disaster resilience, the Commonwealth Attorney-General's Department provides extensive community awareness and school education resources. These are accessed via the Emergency Management in Australia website at www.ema.gov.au
Recent years have seen an additional focus on the tsunami hazard.
New resource materials are being added and updated regularly, including recently a substantial input of tsunami materials for Aboriginal Australians in remote coastal communities.
In particular the new “Tsunami Community Education Kit for Aboriginal Australians in remote coastal communities” is being distributed widely in physical format, to compliment the on-line resource. This Kit aims to educate about warnings and procedures to stay safe in the event of a tsunami. In association with the AEMC Australian Tsunami Working Group (and its State and Territory based membership), the AEMC Remote Indigenous Communities Advisory Council (RICAC) has identified prime dissemination and distribution points for the physical materials.
