Be best prepared for an emergency

Posted 2 years ago in Community


Emergencies can strike at any time, any where and without warning, but the easiest way to protect your loved ones is in the palm of your hand.

As part of Emergency Preparedness Week residents are being encouraged to download the FREE Get Prepared app and create their own emergency plan.

Get Prepared is a free and easy to use, one-stop tool to help residents prepare for any type of emergency, including:

  • Establishing a quick and easy network of support with your three key contacts;
  • Reviewing the risks relevant to where you live;
  • Creating checklists of actions to make an emergency plan; and
  • Saving the emergency plan as a PDF to be printed and shared with others.

Mayor of Camden, Cr Theresa Fedeli, said it was important to be prepared as we work hard to keep each other safe.

“We cannot control accidents or stop emergencies from happening, but what we can do is be best prepared to remain safe,” Cr Fedeli said.

“Getting prepared is quite easy, you can create an emergency plan in as little as five minutes which will ultimately make an emergency less stressful, give you a little bit more control and reduce the impact on you and those you love.

“I encourage residents to download the app and get started on keeping your family safe during an emergency.

Emergency Preparedness Week will be held on 20-27 September 2021 and is run by Red Cross Australia.
