State Highly Commended Award in National Resilient Australia Awards for I’m Okay.
The purpose of the ‘I’m Okay’ website is to enhance the knowledge and capacity of people with a physical disability to increase their ability to respond to an emergency situation or disaster.
The website aims to provide information and tools that are useful and practical, to assist people with disability in being prepared in emergency situations including fires, bush fires, storms, and personal safety. Ultimately the aim is to empower individuals to develop their own emergency ready individual plans.
Since its launch in April 2014, the website has received an overwhelming response from stakeholders who have continued to use and promote the website.
