[Extract] At the conceptual level, disasters can be divided into those with a warning of more than a few hours, and those with a warning of less than a few minutes. This chapter considers disasters with sufficient warning periods to be able to evacuate vulnerable people away from the expected high impact areas. The chapter also develops lessons and recommendations based on actual preparation for a major cyclone storm surge in Cairns, resulting in planning recommendations and conclusions based on ecologically sustainable development (ESD) principles and practicability. All the case studies explored on evacuations are related to community safety and capacity building: involve the community and provide effective information and early warning to the community at risk.
