Remember to always be prepared and to have your emergency kit stocked and at the ready in the event that a natural disaster or other emergency occurs. Having all your important papers and personal essentials like toiletries, first aid supplies and non-perishable food items together and ready to go saves valuable time when you need it most!
For a detailed list of items to include in your emergency kit, go to https://www.qld.gov.au/emergency/dealing-disasters/prepare-for-disasters/emergency-kit
