Get Ready North Burnett

Oct 8, 2018 | Front Page Feature, getreadynorthburnett, News

Get Ready Queensland Week 2018-19 is 8-14 October

This week is Get Ready Queensland Week and North Burnett Regional Council is urging all North Burnett residents to check their ‘WHAT-IF?’ plan and get ready for the upcoming disaster season.

What if…. Get Ready North Burnett!

North Burnett Regional Council strives for safe communities, safe and accessible infrastructure and a safe environment. Above all, it strives for the safety of residents and visitors to our region. While living in the North Burnett has many benefits, it is possible our region may face challenges such as storm, flood or fire – for which we must all be prepared.

Get Ready Queensland Week is the perfect time to get residents thinking about how they can prepare for any surprises summer may have in store.

We encourage our residents to play a part in the Disaster Management planning process by becoming familiar with information on the new North Burnett Disaster Management Dashboard available on Council’s website, reading publications such as the “Get Ready North Burnett” guide to preparing for disasters and emergency situations, and viewing other preparedness material available online or at your local library.  These resources will help you understand how to reduce the impact of disaster and how to protect lives, homes and property – before and after disaster strikes. It’s important to implement your own procedures with friends, family and co-workers in preparation for when a disaster may occur.

Call into your local library during Get Ready Queensland Week to view their Get Ready Queensland Week display and pick up resources to help you GET READY…

Remember! In an Emergency or Life Threatening Situation call Triple Zero ‘000’.

For further information on Get Ready Week, see the Queensland Government’s ‘Get Ready Queensland’ website.

The Get Ready Queensland 2018-19 program provides local governments across Queensland with $2 million in state funding to help them improve their communities’ resilience.
