Join the free Cairns Resilient Businesses Network to help you and your business face challenges like pandemics and natural disasters.
Get support to become more resilient through training, workshops and planning templates. Get help to create a disaster plan which can be tested in a disaster scenario exercise.
The network is an initiative of Cairns Regional Council with support from the Cairns Chamber of Commerce.
Be ready for any business interruption
The network offers training, support and networking for businesses demonstrating levels of resilience through documented planning.
Membership and the resilience building resources are free – the only requirement is that you work towards the network’s resilience standards.
In return, your achievement will be recognised with a certificate, your membership can be promoted to customers, and you will of course be better prepared for business interruptions.
BRONZE: Members are invited to resilience building events, such as workshops, and receive resilience building resources.
SILVER: For businesses that complete a template provided and turn it into a resilience plan. These businesses will be invited to participate in a free group exercise at the Cairns Local Disaster Coordination Centre where their plans can be tested in a disaster scenario.
GOLD: For businesses that complete the disaster scenario exercise. Members receive a discounted, individual review/audit of their plans from a leading industry professional and a certificate as a Cairns Resilient Business.
