Emergency Action Guide

Council is committed to assisting the community in preparing for disaster and emergency events and has therefore published an Emergency Action Guide which focuses on natural disasters.

The Guide will help you:

  • Prepare your Emergency Plan, Emergency Kit and Evacuation Kit
  • Assist you in preparing your family, pets, home, yard and belongings before, during and after a disaster
  • Find information during a disaster and understand the risk and likelihood of disasters within the community
