Communities across Queensland will again benefit from locally led disaster resilience projects with a new round of local government funding issued to all 77 councils and the one town authority in the state.
The 2022-23 Get Ready Queensland council funding program aims to help communities prepare for future disasters and severe weather events through targeted initiatives delivered by councils.
Queensland is the most disaster impacted state in Australia, and the Get Ready Queensland program allows councils to build awareness and preparedness for specific hazards relevant for their communities through a range of in activities, such as community engagement, advertising, new warning equipment and online disaster dashboards.
Natural disasters are becoming more unpredictable in Queensland and the only way we can reduce the impact is to get prepared.
While your local council helps prepare your community, you can prepare your household. For practical steps you can take today, visit getready.qld.gov.au or follow @getreadyqueensland on Facebook and Instagram.
