Administrator's Message - Get Emergency Ready


Wednesday, 15 September 2021


Being prepared for emergencies can save lives, property and help the community recover quicker from disaster events when they do occur.

As we continue to be impacted by the Delta strain variant of the COVID-19 outbreak, and the weather warms up and we head into bushfire and storm season we must remain vigilant. Know your risks. Plan now for what you will do. Get your home ready. Be aware and most importantly, look out for each other.

One way to be prepared is through the Emergency Dashboard now rolled out to councils across the state, including Central Coast Council. Designed to be a ‘go to’ resource for our community providing one location to access emergency information from the NSW RFS, NSW SES, the BoM, Ausgrid, the RMS Live Traffic tool, and of course from Council.

As a community, we’ve displayed great strength in working through challenges together, but what do we do after they pass and how do we learn and prepare for next time? The new Emergency Ready Now podcast shares people’s stories about disaster recovery, community and mental wellbeing to explore these questions and help us become more resilient and connected in the wake of disaster.

It’s time to #GetReady.
