RACQ Get Ready Queensland is an initiative to build the state's resilience to deal with natural disasters. It aims to make Queensland Australia's most disaster resilient state.

Resilience is more than being prepared; it's changing our thinking to accept that extreme weather is a part of our lives.

The government is determined to help all Queenslanders achieve this in partnership with local councils.

In 2016-17 more than $2 million has been committed in grants to local governments to encourage local community participation in preparedness and resilience building.

Grants to councils, as part of the RACQ Get Ready Queensland resilience initiative, will facilitate activities that will make a real difference to resilience in local communities. These activities should encourage:

  • greater community connectedness
  • an understanding of risk and vulnerability within the community and at an individual level
  • planning and procedural preparation, or
  • availability of local resources.

Funding for local government will help facilitate local-driven events and initiatives that focus on the individual and community aspects of preparedness and resilience that involve local people offering the best opportunity for the community to be inspired into action.
