Recent storms and heavy rain have shown that emergency services are prepared but residents need to be ready too. You can make a big difference to your safety by taking a few small steps –
- Prepare your home – make sure your gutters are clean, trim trees and overhanging branches, secure loose items that could be blown around
- Pack your emergency kit – prepare for at least three days of isolation
- Have an emergency and evacuation plan – make sure you include your pets
- Make sure you have adequate insurance in place
Get Ready Queensland provides a year-round program helping all Queenslanders prepare for natural disasters and provides great information about being prepared – getready.qld.gov.au
