North Burnett Emergency Management Dashboard
THE latest emergency and disaster advice, information and updates are now just a click away due to the launch of the North Burnett Emergency Management Dashboard.
The Emergency Management Dashboard provides residents with a single point of reference to keep up to date with vital information before, during and after a disaster or emergency event.
The dashboard will be launched during Get Ready Week.
North Burnett Regional Council Mayor Rachel Chambers says the new dashboard, which can be accessed via the council’s website, brings together all the information you need to help you and your family make the best decisions during an emergency situation.
Cr Chambers said the dashboard, which could be bookmarked to your smart device, had been designed to be user-friendly, adaptable to different devices and readily available without the need for a subscription, log-in or app download.
“You no longer need to visit multiple websites and social media pages to find information during an emergency, as it can now be accessed directly from the dashboard,” she said.
Examples of information found on the dashboard include important updates from the Local Disaster Co-ordination Centre, power outages from Ergon Energy, fire incidents and danger ratings from Queensland Fire and Emergency Services, road closures and conditions from the council and Department of Transport and Main Roads, weather warnings, river height and rainfall data from the Bureau of Meteorology, and social media updates from the council, emergency service agencies and other support services.
“Outside of emergency situations the dashboard will provide residents with up-to-date information on road closures and works, as well as information on how you can better prepare yourself and your family before an emergency situation arises,” she said.
“I encourage all residents and visitors to the region to go online and check out this exciting new resource.”
