North West Queenslanders prepare for disaster season

The Get Ready Queensland team has been on the road in North West Queensland this week talking with locals about how they prepare for severe weather and disasters.

The trip has been a great opportunity to get a better understanding of local communities and their needs heading into disaster season. As part of the trip, the team met with councils and schools in Richmond, McKinlay, Cloncurry and Mt Isa.

It’s been an important reminder that despite the wide range of disasters Queenslanders can face, it’s vital that every community is aware of their risk and prepare for the needs of their loved ones heading into disaster season.
