Sun, surf, lush hinterland… we’re living in a legit paradise here on the Goldie. But with the good comes the sometimes problematic. Our sub-tropical climate can lead to some intense and dangerous weather conditions.


Whilst the weather is unpredictable, us residents need to know exactly how we’ll respond when faced with severe storms, floods, tidal and storm surges, heatwaves and bush fires. The last year alone has shown us we can be faced with any of these at any time.

As we head into summer, we launch into what is traditionally our peak storm season. Have you sorted your emergency response plan?

It’s all about being ready ahead of time, to keep you and yours safe. Educate yourself on where to find weather alerts, make sure your entire household knows the emergency plan and keep a well-stocked emergency kit within easy access.

When future disaster events come around, make sure you’ve backed yourself… and not backed yourself into a corner.
