Community Emergency Risk Assessment (CERA) is an all hazards risk assessment tool which aims to identify, mitigate and reduce risk within the community following the Australian Standard for risk management, ISO 31000.
CERA identifies the hazard risk as a broad statement such as “There is a Riverine Flood Risk in this Municipality”. As no risk is the same across an area as large as a municipality, the committee, agencies and community firstly can plan for the risk as a whole. This will then assist in identifying any gaps in mitigation and also identifying specific areas in the community that may be at greater risk and therefore need more mitigation than other areas.
