A message from Mayor Tom Tate, March 2017
As Mayor, I'm committed to ensuring our city is as prepared as possible for severe storms and other natural disasters. As a business community, we have a role to play in advocating emergency preparation to keep ourselves, our families, homes and businesses safe.Knowing you have a disaster readiness plan in place for your home and your business will help minimise damage and facilitate faster recovery.
This year, some small businesses are partnering with City of Gold Coast to support disaster readiness. These stores sell many of the items needed for an emergency kit.Essential items to include in your kit are:
- non-perishable food and water
- personal hygiene items
- torch with extra batteries
- communications such as radio and batteries
- a phone charger
- pre-paid phone cards
- important documents
- first aid kit.
Prepare your written emergency and evacuation plans, pack your emergency kit and make a list of emergency contacts.For information on disaster readiness and a list of retail partners visit cityofgoldcoast.com.au/getready
