Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

GET Ready, one step at a time. A per­son­alised, step-by-step guide to cre­ate a re­silient en­vi­ron­ment for your­self and your loved ones is now at your fin­ger­tips.

Queens­land Fire and Res­cue Ser­vice (QFRS) Com­mis­sioner Lee John­son said a brand-new dig­i­tal ini­tia­tive, where Queens­lan­ders could sign up for their own per­son­alised Get Ready pro­gram, was now avail­able online.

‘‘All Queens­lan­ders can reg­is­ter by en­ter­ing some ba­sic de­tails about their lo­ca­tion and their lo­cal risks, and each week they will re­ceive one sim­ple task to com­plete. Build­ing re­silience doesn’t get much eas­ier than that,’’ Mr John­son said.

"Weather events are not just a pos­si­bil­ity in Queens­land, they are a cer­tainty, and by reg­is­ter­ing for this ini­tia­tive and com­plet­ing the tasks we can be­come the most re­silient state in Aus­tralia.’’ In­for­ma­tion: 3635 3310
