Pre­par­ing for this storm sea­son

Central Queensland News - - NEWS -

LAST week­end saw the be­gin­ning of this year’s storm sea­son.

Co-or­di­na­tor of Emer­gency Ser­vices at Cen­tral High­lands Re­gional Coun­cil, Glenn Bell said last week­end’s wild weather was a re­minder of what was pos­si­ble this storm sea­son.

“Our mes­sage for res­i­dents is to pre­pare now so that you’re ready when a se­vere storm strikes,” Mr Bell said.

“It’s as sim­ple as mak­ing a ba­sic plan for pets, neigh­bours, your house and for if your fam­ily gets sep­a­rated.

“There are some great re­sources to help with this on the Get Ready Queens­land web­site at ge­tready.qld.gov.au.”

Mr Bell re­minded res­i­dents that, dur­ing a storm, it was best to stay in­doors or un­der­cover and away from win­dows, trees and power lines.

“We host an Emer­gency Man­age­ment Dash­board that has all the in­for­ma­tion you need for when wild weather strikes,” he said.

“It can be found at bepre­pared.chrc.qld.gov.au or via the link on coun­cil’s web­site home­page.”
