Disasters affect everyone differently. Some people recover soon after while others may take a long time to feel like things are back to normal. 

It is important to stay safe after a disaster has happened:

  • Listen to your ABC Wide Bay (100.1 FM) and monitor Council’s emergency news and media outlets for updates.
  • Take precautions when venturing outside.
  • Check your home for damage and shut off any damaged utilities.
  • Check on neighbours and those who require additional support.
  • Check for structural property damage.
  • If evacuated, do not return home until advised by the authorities.  When advised, use the recommended route.
  • Stay away from damaged power lines, fallen trees, flooded waterways.  Report to the appropriate authority.
  • Do not go sightseeing.
  • Do not eat or drink anything that may be contaminated.
