Agreed with other Michael and Chris – it addresses the ‘most common’ stakeholders affected rather than the most vulnerable. This may reflect an emphasis on assisting all those in need due to the immediacy of the potential threat rather than triaging individuals by vulnerability – although I would argue that effective triaging of risk would allow for more effective responses. An endangered property of an elderly couple who are known to have various council and home help services in place should warrant a phone call at least to see if they are aware of the immediacy of the issue and are able to safely evacuate in the event of a bushfire, for example, whereas you would be less concerned about the physical ability of a young couple to evacuate.
