Be emergency ready with a 'what-if' plan

THE Isaac Regional Council is urging residents to consider their "what-if” plan and get prepared during RACQ Get Ready Week, October 10-16.

Local Disaster Management Group chair and Mayor Anne Baker said Queensland is at increased risk of natural disasters during November to April.

"Isaac is susceptible to bushfires, flooding, tropical cyclones, road closures and service outages to name a few,” she said.

"RACQ Get Ready Week is an important reminder to get prepared now by tidying up gardens, cleaning gutters and making sure insurances are up to date.

"There are lots of ways you can prepare, but the easiest way is to visit the Get Ready website www.getready.qld.gov.au for great tips and fact sheets.

"As a community, if we each do a little, we all accomplish a lot.”
