We’ve got your definitive safety and readiness checklist to go through before cyclone season is in town. Save it, print it out, or even stick on the fridge to make sure you’ve got everything covered.
Remember – every box ticked is another level of safety added for your home, family and business.
DURING THE STORM: The storm’s here! But are you ready?
So, cyclone season is officially upon us. As you already know, safety should be an absolute primary concern; be it for your home, business, family, and self.
Here are some essential safety tips you should practice during these – pardon the pun – stormy times!
Driving and Road Safety
Roads often become flooded before water affects homes. It is important that you stay informed of local road conditions to prevent you and your family from becoming isolated.
Many drivers rescued from flood waters report that they were in a hurry to get home to safety as a reason for tempting the danger of driving into water. Regardless of the type of car and despite what car commercials show, driving into flood waters is an absolute no-no.
Flood waters can be dangerous. Be aware of the following:
It is natural to want to stay and protect your home and valuables. In times of emergency, the State Emergency Service (SES) will provide assistance and support, including sandbags, to help you protect your property.
However, as flood waters rise, dangers increase and evacuation may be required. Before you evacuate, remind your family or other household members of your central contact point in case you get separated. Make sure each household member has important phone numbers with them.
Who to contact if you are affected:
AFTER THE STORM: Cyclone season may be over but are you safe yet?
Time to finally enjoy a chilled stubby in the backyard… right after you get every box on this checklist ticked. The skies may be clear, but you need to make sure your home and business are always safe.
All done? You’ve earned yourself a day out with the family. Be sure to check with us every cyclone season for safety tips, checklists, and advice on how to barrel through the storm with zero to minimal damage.
