Labor Budget Breaks Key Promise on Mental Health

Be proactive, not reactive.

Last summer saw Queensland battered cyclones and storms, the human and financial cost of which is still being counted. As we push ahead into yet another summer of unpredictable whether I would like to remind residents to be mindful of the steps they can actively take to prepare for storm season. Below are some simple steps to help prepare you and your home for this summer.

1) Clear properties of rubbish.
2) Trim trees which could cause damage during high winds.
3) Clear out gutters.
4) Prepare an emergency kit that contains emergency phone numbers, portable radio, spare batteries, torch and first aid kit.

The time to prepare is now.

The SES can assist people with emergency tarping of damaged homes, clearing of fallen trees that are blocking access and cleaning up storm debris. If you require SES assistance for storm damage, rising flood waters, fallen trees on buildings or damaged roofs, call the SES on 132 500. For life threatening emergencies please call 000.
