A few important points to remember after a flood event are listed below.
For more information on what to do after a flood event, download the below booklet prepared by Emergency Management Australia.
The Hinchinbrook Shire Council Recovery Plan (the Recovery Plan) has been developed following the impacts of the flooding in the region associated with the North Queensland Flooding Event of 6 – 10 March 2018 and Severe Tropical Cyclone Nora and Associated Flooding Event of 24 – 29 March 2018.
The Recovery Plan aims to provide the structure for a locally-led recovery approach that will assist disaster-impacted members of the community to recover quickly, effectively and remain sustainable. It also aims to incorporate development strategies within this recovery to enhance the resilience of all sectors of the community for subsequent disaster events.
This Recovery Plan establishes the context for recovery within the Hinchinbrook Shire related to the flooding events of March 2018. It describes the recovery governance arrangements and details key recovery tasks necessary to achieve successful recovery outcomes across the region. The Recovery Plan establishes important recovery milestones and estimated completion dates of associated projects. It also documents strategies and activities that will be undertaken to better prepare for, and reduce the impacts of future disaster events while enhancing Hinchinbrook’s resilience, sustainability and prosperity.
The Recovery Plan supports Council’s mission, “To shape a positive future for the Hinchinbrook community by understanding community needs and wants, building on our inherent strengths, recognising and maximising opportunities and facing our challenges head on”.
