The language of resilience: Emergency management for newly arrived communities. Migrants, asylum seekers and refugees are often unaware of the risks they may face in arriving in Australia. In addition they may not have access to or understand emergency preparedness communications. At the National Diversity in Disaster Conference, to be held at the MCG in Melbourne on 17-18 April, you can gain insights into the barriers that people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds face in an emergency or disaster, and learn how to communicate effectively with people who are new to Australia or whose first language is not English.
