The best time to prepare for a disaster is before one is even on its way. Planning well means nothing is left to chance and that everyone knows what they need to do and where things are. Because storms, fires, droughts and floods are a part of life in North West Queensland, it’s easy to become complacent. There a lots of resources available to help prepare and support you during a natural disaster. The check list and plan below are a great prompt to ensure you have everything prepared ahead of this wet season.

Cloncurry Shire Council, through the work of the Local Disaster Management Group, will maintain their commitment to effective disaster management for the Shire.
