    Abstract

    Evidence of principles and strategies to include remote Australian Aboriginal communities in Emergency Management (EM) in Australia abound. For example, the existence of the definitive national strategy called Keeping our Mob Safe is evidence that the government acknowledges and sees a need to engage more effectively with remote Australian Aboriginal communities. The strategy clearly identifies the desire and willingness of Australian Aboriginal communities to engage.
