The NSW Government is developing a Critical Infrastructure Resilience Strategy (CIRS) for the State and has released the
NSW Critical Infrastructure Resilience Strategy Discussion Paper for comment.
A state-wide resilience strategy will help keep the lights on, help keep water running, and help people and goods flow through our transport and trade routes, even in emergencies.
The work we all do before a disaster helps save lives, protects property, and prepare communities for those challenging times during and immediately after a disaster.
The NSW Government seeks submissions on what should be included in a future strategy to enhance the critical infrastructure (CI) resilience of NSW. Continued service provision in the face of all hazards, or rapid restoration from disruption, is a priority.
