To make sure that we and our community are prepared for an emergency situation such as fire or flood, we have developed an Emergency Management Plan. The plan is frequently reviewed to ensure accuracy, suitability and relevance.
What you need to know
We will use our Facebook page to keep you as up to date as possible and our website banner will change in an emergency situation and will point you to our Facebook page.
You can also tune in to ABC Radio, 91.7FM or 1584AM as well as the local community radio station StarFM 93.7FM or 100.3FM. Both these stations will be broadcasting regular updates.
If you are in immediate danger then please call 000.
