'To be truly resilient as a sector and, importantly, in our communities, now is the time to think differently. We need to identify further ways to develop our capability and enhance our competency to be able to deal with the unpredictable and unimagined. Understanding how we think in dealing with disasters and emergencies is a key part of better equipping the nation’s resilience.'
