Planning for Emergencies Significantly Reduces Losses Associated with Disasters

November 23, 2022 12:26 am

As we continue to experience extreme weather events across most states, it is important we are prepared for any emergency we may be presented with.

Did you know?
Households that plan for emergencies significantly reduce losses associated with disasters.

Planning is important so that you know your risks and what to do if there is a flood, storm and other adverse weather events. This can save your life, the life of your family members and the lives of others including your pets. It can also minimise damage to your property and possessions.

For NSW clients you can develop your home emergency plan using NSW SES planning tool

For QLD clients you can prepare your home emergency plan using QLD Government Household Emergency Plan
