Getting Ready: What can you do to be prepared?

Published 17 Apr 2023

The cyclone has highlighted the need for people to be prepared in case of an emergency, so what can you do to be prepared?

Grab bags are a great way to be prepared for a future event. A grab bag is a small bag with essential supplies.

Each bag should have:

  • Walking shoes, warm clothes, raincoat & hat
  • Water and snack food (remember babies and pets too)
  • Hand sanitiser
  • Portable phone charger
  • Cash
  • Copies of important documents & photo ID

Remember any medications you might need and keep your first aid kit, mask or face covering, torch, radio and batteries somewhere you can grab them in a hurry.

If you have special dietary needs, make sure you have the food you need in your grab bag too.
