Over recent years there has been a strong public perception of an increase in the frequency, intensity and impact of disasters worldwide and this has attracted much attention and concern from government leaders, academics, managers, communities, and relevant stakeholders (Bradt, Abraham & Franks 2003, Chen & Helminiak 2013, Subbarao et al. 2008). This increase in attention is compounded by matters which have heightened community risk, including the effects of climate change, population growth, the interconnectivity and complexity of modern societies, urbanisation and its impact on land use planning, and an increase in the proportion of vulnerable members of society.
