Extreme weather is part of our lives in Queensland, and we are working with councils to help make Queensland the most disaster resilient state in Australia.
RACQ Get Ready Queensland is the State's year-round, all-hazards disaster preparedness and resilience building program. It aims to position Queensland as Australia's most disaster-resilient State, integrate all preparedness activities year round under one brand and to engage all Queenslanders to participate. This is achieved through partnerships with local councils, public education and useful resources.
Funding is available each year for councils under the RACQ Get Ready Queensland resilience initiative to help councils conduct community events, such as those in the annual RACQ Get Ready Week. In 2016, RACQ Get Ready Week runs from 10 - 16 October, with RACQ Get Ready Day on 16 October.
