"Disaster Prepared! Together, We're Stronger"

Battered but not beaten

We want you to help ensure we're all Disaster Prepared!

We live in a beautiful part of the world with lush rainforests, sun-kissed beaches and stunning coral reefs. Each year though, we also face localised flooding, the threat of cyclones, storm surge, and other events … all a part of life in the Far North.

Remember natural events can occur at any time of the year!

As residents of this region we want you to help ensure that as a community we're disaster prepared. Please explore and actively participate in this website and encourage your friends, family, colleagues and neighbours to do the same.
