Are you Disaster Ready?

21st October 2017

Now is the time to prepare your Emergency Plan!

Having an Emergency Plan is an important step to prepare for, survive and cope with emergencies.

To prepare your emergency plan you need to:

  1. Research hazards and disaster management arrangements in your community - Ask about emergency and evacuation plans at your workplace, school, and childcare providers. Check if they need details of your household emergency contacts.
  2. Discuss possible scenarios and responses with your household - Depending on the type of emergency, decide how you would keep in touch and where you would meet.
  3. Record important details on your Emergency Plan such as - All householder mobile phones, other numbers such as work, school, childcare providers, friends, neighbours and your household emergency contacts.
  4. Ensure everyone in your household is prepared - Teach children how and when to call Triple 0, ensure householders have current First Aid certification.
