6.10 Recovery Escalation Criteria

As shown in the following figure, initial recovery management is undertaken at the municipal level. The impact of an event may lead to community needs that exceed the capacity of a municipal council. The Council may then seek to escalate the level of management to a regional level. This escalation provides an additional layer of management rather than a replacement layer. Further escalation to the state level of management may be necessary in respect of certain service needs in very large or complex events.
