Get ready for natural disasters

Each year, communities across NSW experience a range of emergencies, including bushfires, home fires, floods, storms, heatwaves and power outages.

Recently, we have seen unprecedented events impacting large NSW areas happen quickly, highlighting the importance of being prepared for all hazards and natural disasters.

Our emergency service organisations do an incredible job keeping us safe, but they can only do so much.

Being aware and prepared is everyone’s responsibility.

Get Ready in five simple steps

  1. Know your risk - think about the area you’re in and the types of disasters that could affect you
  2. Plan now for what you will do - sit down and talk with your family and plan for what you will do if a disaster affects your area
  3. Get your home ready - prepare your home by doing general home maintenance and checking your insurance coverage
  4. Be aware - find out how to prepare, what to do if there is a disaster in your area and connect with NSW emergency services to stay informed
  5. Look out for each other - share information with your family, friends, neighbours and those needing assistance.
