Looking for something to keep the kids occupied these school holidays? Get Ready Queensland has launched its first interactive online game which challenges Queensland kids to prepare for future disasters and severe weather.

The Get Ready Queensland Challenge was jointly funded by the Commonwealth and Queensland Disaster Recovery Funding Arrangements (DRFA) through the Community Recovery Fund, established in the wake of the 2019 North and Far North Queensland monsoonal flooding event.

Queenslanders are no stranger to the devastating impact of disasters and being prepared is just part of life in the Sunshine State.

That’s why it’s important even our youngest Queenslanders understand their risks and what they need to do to reduce the impact of future disasters.

The Get Ready Queensland Challenge aims to engage and empower children to be part of their household’s emergency planning through undertaking a range of virtual disaster preparedness challenges like identifying risks, looking out for neighbours, removing hazards, and packing emergency kits.

There are nine levels in the Get Ready Queensland Challenge which have been designed to instil important knowledge for participants to implement in their own home and community.
