FIRES, STORMS, AND FLOODS: are you prepared?

WITH our region being prone to fire, storm and flood risk, it’s a timely reminder to ensure that all residents take the 3 Steps to Get Ready.

1. Make an emergency plan

2. Have an emergency kit and supplies

3. Make sure you’re adequately insured

For information on developing your plan, we strongly recommend you visit the Get Ready Queensland website and check out the 3 STEPS TO GET READY page at https://www.getready.qld.gov.au/get-prepared/3-steps-get-ready
