We have partnered with Australian Red Cross for Emergency Ready Week, to help you protect who and what you love in the event of an emergency.
It’s not something we like to think about, but a natural disaster or an emergency can strike without warning. While we can’t stop them from happening, there are a few things we can do to be as prepared as possible.
Download the Get Prepared app and ensure your emergency plan is at your fingertips whenever you need it. The app also helps you locate local emergency services contacts, create your list of key contacts, identify a safe meeting place and create checklists of what to pack. It’s available on iOS, Android and redcross.org.au/prepare.
There are also some simple steps that you can take while you are in the Centre to help you prepare like getting an extra torch, batteries, or a solar powered phone charger.
And remember, over summer our Centre will be open to provide an escape from the heat or to pick up any last-minute emergency supplies.
