Disaster Management

Get Ready Queensland

Don't wait for a disaster to happen before you think about how you and your family are going to survive. In a major disaster, high winds, rising floodwaters, debris or damaged roads can prevent emergency services from reaching you. Your community could be isolated and essential services disrupted for up to three days or more.

You may not have immediate access to support and will need to rely on the supplies and equipment you have on hand at home. If you were isolated right now, would you be prepared?

Be Ready Central West 

The Be Ready Central West flipbook is a collaboration between Barcaldine, Blackall-Tambo and Longreach Regional Councils and the Winton and Barcoo Shire Councils.

The flipbook addresses the most common natural disaster events that occur in the central west, such as flooding, severe storms, bushfires, heatwaves and as of last year, pandemics, and provides information on how to prepare for these events and the steps to take once the event has passed.
