Make a plan for natural disasters

The Bureau of Meteorology has said we’re on course for a hot summer. It’s important to get prepared for extreme weather and natural disasters such as bushfires and floods.

The best way to get you and your household members ready is to develop an emergency plan and then act on it. Your emergency plan needs to prepare you to go or stay when safe to do so, and includes:

  • medical information for you and your household members
  • important documents and storing them safely in one place
  • things to go in an emergency bag or “grab and go” bag
  • important information and supplies for any pets or assistance animals.

The following are some resources to help you with your emergency planning.
