Operation Knock Knock To Target Local Storm Tide Zones In The Hinchinbrook

10th September 2018

The state-wide initiative Operation Knock Knock will be hitting the streets of Lucinda, Forrest Beach and Taylors Beach on Saturday 15 September to raise awareness in the community about Storm Tide risks and how to plan accordingly.

Mayor Ramon Jayo said ‘On September 15 staff and volunteers from emergency services and volunteer organisations will be knocking on doors throughout our storm tide evacuation areas to discuss the importance of being prepared in the event of an emergency.’

‘It is important that the community understand the hazards that may occur in their area and know what they can do to prepare for these incidents and keep themselves and their families safe.’

Queensland Fire and Emergency Services (QFES) Commissioner Katarina Carroll said Operation Knock Knock would encourage community spirit.

“QFES spends a lot of time ensuring we are prepared for emergencies and disasters and we want to ensure every Queensland household is equipped with the knowledge they need to prepare,” she said.

“Know your risk, be prepared, and ensure you are connected with your community because when times get tough, that’s when we need to work together.”

Operation Knock Knock is a multi-agency initiative and is supported Queensland Fire and Emergency Services (including the State Emergency Service, Rural Fire Service and Fire and Rescue Service), Queensland Reconstruction Authority, Local Government Association of Queensland, Surf Life Saving Queensland, Volunteer Marine Rescue Queensland, Queensland Police Service, Red Cross and the PCYC Emergency Services Cadets.
