New disaster response human resource sharing database
To streamline the process for inter-council human resource sharing during this and future emergencies, the MAV has established an online Human Resource Sharing Database.
The database will record all council-to-council offers of assistance to fire-affected councils and allow the MAV to sort offers by location, skillset and availability to ensure we connect fire-affected councils with the most suitable support, as quickly as possible.
To date, 50 councils have joined the database with close to 200 offers of assistance in the system. All council CEOs have been invited to nominate a single point of contact to collate and input each council’s resource support offers. Please submit any new offers of support to your nominated key contact to be logged in the database. If your council is in need of human resourcing support, please reach out to Emma Lake.
