Disaster Preparedness Week
Posted 27 August 2020 Disaster Preparedness Week

Every year Red Cross runs an annual campaign to help all Australians prepare for disasters and emergencies of any kind. This year, more than ever, we have seen how emergencies can happen to all of us. We can’t stop disasters or emergencies, like the Black Summer Bushfires and COVID-19 pandemic, from happening, but we can reduce their impact by being prepared. Being prepared can make an emergency less stressful, give you more control, and reduce the impact on you and those you love. In less time than it takes to make a sandwich, you can take one action to get prepared. Red Cross has developed a range of easy-to-use tools you can use to get prepared ahead of an emergency.
