Abstract

This 18-month research report shows that non English speakers (NESH) in Australia, normally recent immigrants or refugees, are among the most marginalized for hearing emergency warnings, and knowing what to do. Learning that most NESH families had at least one mobile (cell) phone means, as a recognized 'special needs' group, local disaster managers can contact multicultural organizations, so that NESH will hear of and be instructed about the looming threat, via their community leaders.
