To keep track of local emergency news don’t forget to check out the Gympie Regional Council Disaster Dashboard.
The Disaster Dashboard is an excellent online tool with current information on local road conditions and closures, power outages, bushfire incidents and weather warnings.
It also includes live feeds from sites such as the Department of Transport and Main Roads and the Bureau of Meteorology.
During severe disaster and emergency events, evacuation and recovery centres may become available across the region.
As centres become active, the Dashboard will be updated with location details. You’ll also be able to view current river heights, flood maps, and access a range of emergency services if you require assistance from the SES or providers, such as Telstra.
The Dashboard is easily accessible from the Gympie Regional Council website’s quick links or go direct to disaster.gympie.qld.gov.au.
