If you do a little, we all accomplish a lot
Get Ready Queensland is about building our resilience to deal with the extreme weather and natural disasters that are a part of living in our state. Its aim is to make Queensland Australia’s most disaster resilient state.
Resilience is about more than just good preparation or effective responding: it needs a mindset that accepts extreme weather is a part of living in Queensland, and prepares to handle it accordingly.
The Queensland Government is determined to do all it can to foster this new mindset. Our four-year strategy includes a new public education campaign, an annual week of community events focused on getting ready for extreme weather, and a $2 million local government funding program to help councils deliver local initiatives that not only make their communities safer, but help everyone bounce back more quickly after a natural disaster.
